Can an ENT doctor detect early/mild septum erosion from coke

Can an ENT doctor detect early/mild septum erosion from coke use?

Welcome and thank you for your question.

An early /mild septal erosion can be detected but will be difficult to differentiate whether the erosion is from coke use or due to other causes like frequent use of decongestants or infections by bacteria and fungi. Once the erosion has acquired depth or when tehcartilage begins to give way, the diagnosis becomes easier.

I hope this helps.
