Do you know the length of your styloid processes? I had a 3d cone beam scan which read “slightly elongated bilateral styloid processes and slightly calcified ligaments.” I have some symptoms, mostly throat pain behind both tonsils that radiates. But the ENT I saw does not know if my symptoms are due to these results. Just curious if anyone else has only slightly elongated styloid processes with symptoms occurring?
We've had quite a few discussions about this- in the medical profession there's not even agreement over what a 'normal' length is! The average seems to be 2.5-3 cms, but the angle of the styloids can give symptoms, not just the length. If you have slightly calcified ligaments they can cause symptoms too.
Jules, thanks for your response!
