Nasal and sinus cancer cells are found in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. The nasal cavity and surrounding sinuses assist in maintaining the functionality and structure of the head and neck area, and are essential in our everyday lives. Lined with a layer of mucous tissue, these structures are susceptible to the abnormal cell development that can lead to cancerous tumor formation.
If cancer is suspected, your doctor will perform a series of tests, such as:
- This may be used if a mass is suspected using local or general anesthesia.
- Imaging Test:
- CT scan
- Biopsy (to diagnose and stage your condition)
