The first ones symptoms that something was wrong with his voice appeared a few months ago, when he owns Edurne reported that an unforeseen health event forced her to cancel both concerts what I had expected then.

It all started after Concert “Dial Unicos”, organized at the end of May by radio at the Teatro Coliseum in Madrid. Once finished, the singer began to be “somewhat regular”.

Voice diseases in singers and how to treat them

Edurne suffers from aphoniathe “singers’ disease” from which other artists like Shakira, Adele or Aitana (dysphonia), Marta Sánchez (pharyngolaryngitis) have also sufferedwho also had to take a career break, or Rose Lopez. The latter did not have the same luck, because the rest was not enough and had to be operated on the vocal cords of a cyst in the throat after losing his voice, and what happened more than a year removed from music. Five years ago, during his visit to my house is yourswinner of Operation Triumph 1 implied that he had been the victim of medical negligence.

The aphonia suffered by Edurne it’s a common pathology in people who use the voice as a work tool. This is why they must take extreme precautions with anyoneas don’t shout, smoke, be careful in harmful environments, or avoid coughing or clearing your throat…

Ear, nose and throat specialist Daniel Polettiuniversity professor, member of the European Society of Laryngology and who is part of the ENT team of Dr. Pablo Ortiz in Madrid, explained the keys to voice care for the portal Promotion of music.

The first advice is for the singer to have a good technical vocal training, learn to use it in the best possible way.

It is also important that the singer “Define what the vocal register is, because if you don’t use the one that corresponds to it in time it could cause problems in the future”, emphasizes the expert.

If these premises are not met, pathologies such as dysphonia, the most characteristic and the one who suffered Aitana, although sometimes it can happen hoarseness, like that of Edurne.

The dysphonia it’s a voice alteration, a “change in the tone of voice normally recorded by a person”. This hoarseness, explains the doctor, “can be something transient, what is called vocal violence”, which arises by forcing the voice beyond the possibilities of each one.

If not cured, it can lead something more serious, such as inflammation of the vocal cords which causes the appearance of the so-calleds nodules, “which do not vibrate properly and produce what is called voice dysphonia”, points out Poletti. These nodules can cause “hard nodules”, a callus, which would require surgery in order to delete them.

Another pathology associated with singers is the case of polyps on the vocal cords, which occur “when subjected to an effort or an excess that leads to the generation in some cases of a punctual inflammation of the vocal cord or a small hemorrhage” which is reabsorbed forming the polyp.

The treatment in this case is usually surgery. The problem “is that sometimes in this type of surgery, if they are not performed with microsurgical techniques, changes in the tone of the singer’s voice could be generated”, what could have happened to Rosa López, whose vocal intensity after her intervention was never the same as Operation Triumph.

There are others voice pathologies common to all as hoarseness (hoarse voice) or the vocal fatigue due to overuse of the larynx“because like any muscle, the vocal cords can fatigue and singers, for example, may notice that vocal range decreases or roosters come out changing pitch or crowing for a long time”. It is also possible to suffer pain in the neck area from using muscles to try to reach certain tones.
