What Are some Nasal Cancer Symptoms?

The symptoms of Sinonasal Cancer very closely resemble a persistent sinus infection.  This is why many sufferers of nasal cancer do not get the help they need on time.

The symptoms of nasal cancer range from minor to severe, depending on which stage of the disease the patient has entered. In the early stages of Sinonasal cancer, symptoms may include nasal obstructions, nosebleeds, discharge, and upper tooth pain. If the cancer has progressed to more advanced stages, symptoms can include:

  • Severe Pain and Numbness in the Cheek
  • Blurry/Double Vision
  • Excessive Tearing
  • Bulges in the Nose or Cheek Area
  • Hearing Loss
  • Enlarged Lymph Nodes in the Neck (usually an indicator that the disease has metastasized)

While there is no cure for nasal cancer, the survival rate is dependent on the location of the disease and whether it has metastasized. Sinonasal cancer treatment options include surgery to remove the tumors, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and other techniques.
