Conditions We Treat: Neoplasms
A neoplasm, typically a benign tumor, can behave more aggressively if not fully treated, rarely giving rise to a cancer. Endoscopic surgery, combined in some cases with open surgical approaches, is used to manage this condition. Inverting papilloma is the most common type of benign tumor in the nose.
Neoplasms: What You Need to Know
- Some malignant tumors that occur in the nose include esthesioneuroblastoma (olfactory neuroblastoma), squamous cell carcinoma, lymphoma, adenoid cystic carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and mucosal melanoma.
- Malignant tumors can be biopsied and diagnosed endoscopically and in some cases removed surgically with a solely endoscopic approach.
- Our team of experts works closely with our colleagues in the Head and Neck Cancer Surgery Center and the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery to treat patients with neoplasms.
