A malignant sinonasal tumor is a cancerous growth inside the nasal or sinus passages. These cancerous tumors can invade healthy tissue and spread to distant parts of the body. Malignant tumors can arise from any of the areas inside the nose or sinuses, including the lining, the blood vessels, the nerves, bone, and cartilage. If the tumor gets too large, it can affect your ability to breathe properly, as well as your sense of smell and vision.
There are different types of malignant sinonasal tumors. These include:
- Squamous cell cancer
- Sinonasal Undifferentiated Carcinoma (SNUC)
We understand that cancer is a frightening, life-changing disease that can affect all aspects of your well-being (physical, emotional, and spiritual). Our multidisciplinary team
approach assures that you receive every aspect of care to meet all your needs.
