What are Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancers?

They are usually squamous cell cancers that develop in the mucus-producing tissue called mucosa, which lines the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. Nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancers make up 3-5% of all head and neck cancers in the US. According to the American Cancer Society, around 90% of these cancers occur in people over the age of 55. 

Symptoms of nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancer may include:

  • Lingering nasal congestion
  • Pain above or below the eyes and when opening the mouth
  • Nose blockage, post-nasal drip, and nosebleeds 
  • Smelling problems
  • Facial pain and numbness
  • Facial lumps or lumps inside the nose
  • Vision problems and eye bulging
  • Ear pain and hearing problems
  • Headaches
  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the back of the neck 

These symptoms do not immediately indicate cancer. They are often caused by other conditions that only require antibiotics and regular drugs. But if you have cancer risk factors such as hereditary retinoblastoma, or work in an occupation that may expose you to frequent dust inhalation, you should inform your doctor. There are imaging tests and biopsies available that may help detect nasal cavity and paranasal sinus cancer early. 

These cancers are relatively rare, and there is no standard screening process for them. But because the symptoms can cause a high level of discomfort, they can often be caught in the early stages. When found, they are treated primarily with the following methods:

  • Surgery
  • Targeted Drug Therapy
  • Radiation Therapy 
  • Immunotherapy

The American Cancer Society uses the SEER database to estimate the relative 5-year survival rate for cancers. They group cancers into the localized, regional, and distant stages. At the localized stage, when the cancer is still confined to its origin, it has an 86% survival rate. When it spreads to nearby structures and lymph nodes, the survival rate drops to 52%. And when it reaches the distant stage, where cancer has spread to other organs, the survival rate is only 43%. 

What Can I Do if I was Misdiagnosed or Diagnosed Late with Nasal Cavity or Paranasal Sinus Cancer in New York? 

Seek a medical malpractice attorney for legal advice if you’ve been misdiagnosed or diagnosed late. Early detection is crucial because allowing cancer to grow and spread untreated increases the intensity of treatments and the possible complications. If you or a loved one have been misdiagnosed or received a late diagnosis for your nasal cavity or paranasal sinus cancer in the State of New York, call the Porter Law Group. We can evaluate your case for free, and help you recover compensation for injuries caused by your doctor’s medical negligence. 

The Porter Law Group has secured millions of dollars* for patients whose cancer was misdiagnosed, or diagnosed late. We can recover compensation for you if your doctor deviated from the expected standard of care for persons with similar conditions, causing you damage or injury. We work with board-certified medical experts that can evaluate if your cancer should have been diagnosed sooner, and testify on your behalf. 

Can I Sue for Medical Malpractice if I was Diagnosed Late with Nasal or Paranasal Sinus Cancer in New York?

Patients may be eligible to sue medical staff if their nasal or paranasal sinus cancer is diagnosed late. However, medical negligence cases are complex, especially in the State of New York. Not only do you have to navigate the daunting documentary and filing requirements, but you also have to be aware of the statute of limitations to bring your case forward. You also need a medical expert to testify that your injury was caused by your doctor’s deviation from the expected standard of care for patients with similar conditions. 

It is not enough to show that you’ve been injured to receive compensation for medical misdiagnosis. Not all cases of late diagnosis are medical malpractice. You have to establish that there was a doctor-patient relationship, that there was a deviation from the expected standard of care for patients with similar conditions. And that this deviation was the proximate cause of your injury. You need an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to help you bring together a sound case. Call the Porter Law Group today. Our experienced trial lawyers and the medical experts we work with can evaluate your case and help you secure financial compensation if you or a loved one have suffered from medical malpractice in the State of New York.
