As a Los Angeles sinus surgeon, I see my fair share of sinus cancer diagnoses. It is a sad but true fact that many of these cases don’t arrive at my offices until the cancer has progressed considerably. This is a product of the way that sinus cancer grows; most patients aren’t aware something is wrong until the later stages:
[Sinus tumors] often present as pain in the teeth or face, bleeding or persistent nasal obstruction. They also can press up against the eye, causing double or blurry vision.
That quote comes from this recent Q&A, which addresses some of the most pressing issues in the study and treatment of paranasal sinus cancer. The most important point is that it’s always wise to err on the side of caution with unusual sinus symptoms.
