It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Sinus Conditions, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Nasal And Sinus Cancer.
Nasal and sinus cancer can occur very rarely. These cancers can derive from epithelial (cells from the lining of the cavities) origin or non-epithelial origin. Each of these origin types can lead to multiple different types of cancers. Symptoms can include nose bleeds, sinus problems, vision problems, nasal congestion and neurological problems. If left untreated due to misdiagnosis cancer in this area can grow into the eye or brain leading to blindness, stroke, intracranial infections and death. While rare these cancers are very treatable if caught early enough around an 80% survival rate.
