Doctors use steroids for a whole bunch of various things. I've noticed that you have been posting on the depression forum. If you suffer from depression, make sure to bring this up to your docs attention since prednisone can increase the depression/anxiety level. Why doesn't the doc just remove the polyp? Do polyps have a chance of reoccurance?
