There is no pain in these examinations. Many young children as young as 3 years old are able to undergo these examinations without any issue.
Our clinic also provides a paediatric nasoendocope that is smaller and softer than the usual nasoscope, allowing the procedure to be painless and fast without compromising on the quality of the examination for young children.
