First, you’ll meet with your doctor for a physical exam. If your doctor finds possible signs of sinus cancer, he or she will order more tests, including:
Imaging tests: Scans including CT, MRI, PET scans and X-rays help confirm if a tumor exists and if it’s spread to other areas.
Sinus endoscopy: A thin, lighted tube (nasoscope) is inserted into the nose. This allows your doctor to look for possible abnormal tissue inside your sinuses.
Biopsy: The removal of a small piece of tissue that’s suspected of being cancerous.
