Submitted by James P Thomas MD on Sat, 2012-04-07 14:06 Permalink In general, pitches related In general, pitches related to the thickness and tension on the vocal cords. When someone has an abnormal pitch, relative to their appearance, it is sometimes because of a problem with the thickness or thinness of the vocal cords. A good, close endoscopic examination of the vocal cords should be able to reveal the cause of your high-pitched voice. Then it would be possible to determine what could be done to change that. There are some surgeries that can alter pitch.
