Vocal Nodules Explained
Blue HQ has been besieged by worried fans after the cancellation of the Best of Blue tour due to Lee developing nodules on his vocal chords. We would like to assure everybody who has expressed their concern that this is a common complaint in singers and is no way life-threatening.
Vocal nodules are small swellings that develop approximately one third of the way along the length of the vocal cords and particularly affect those who use the higher registers during singing. In order for the swellings to subside Lee has been advised by specialists to rest his voice for six to eight weeks, after which time he will be back with the voice we all know and love.
