Nasal and sinus cancers

Patients may experience blocked nose, change in voice, swelling of the cheek, headache, pain or numbness in the cheek. The main risk factor for this type of cancer is smoking but may also be associated with inhalation of chemicals, metals and wood dust over many years.

Nasal and sinus cancers are often treated with surgery. Radiotherapy or chemotherapy may also be required.
