Symptoms may include:

  • Persistent and/or sinus nasal congestion
  • Frequent nose bleeds – particularly from one side of the nose
  • Loss of sensation in the face
  • Swelling around the eyes or nose
  • Problems with the eyes (tearing, blurred vision, pressure in the eye)
  • Lump in the neck

The symptoms of nasal and sinus tumours are similar to many other conditions so a complete examination is needed to confirm a diagnosis.

Your consultant will need to perform a biopsy to retrieve a sample of tissue for analysis in a laboratory. If the effected tissue is not visible in your nose your consultant may need to perform a diagnostic endoscopy. Other tests such as a CT or MRI scan may help confirm your diagnosis.

Our experienced ENT consultants can diagnose and treat nasal and sinus tumours in a hospital near you.
