Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Recurrent nasal polyps should be evaluated for any malignancy and if not treated conservatively and if symptoms are unbearable, get the polyp excision, its very easy and safe procedure.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
