  • Nasal Cavity and Para Nasal Sinuses Cancer

Nasal Cancer is a disease that affects the nasal cavity, frontal sinuses, and the paranasal sinuses of cats. Usually, it starts in the nasal cavity and metastasizes to the frontal and paranasal sinuses.

Nasal Cancer differs from other types of cancer in two ways.

Nasal tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. In other words, they are locally invasive. Most other types of cancer, conversely, usually start in a particular part of the body and spread to several other parts.

The symptoms of nasal tumors are not similar to the symptoms of any other disease. This is not the case with most other types of cancer as their symptoms are usually similar to the symptoms of some of the common disorders that affect cats.

Symptoms to Look Out For

  • Pain around the eyes
  • One sided nose blockage
  • Bleeding of the nose
  • Pus formation and draining in the nose
  • Trouble opening the mouth
  • Pain or numbness in the teeth
  • Decline in vision capacity
  • Pain due to pressure in any one of the ears
  • Continuous watering of the eyes
  • Hearing loss

Treatments for cat nasal cancer include chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Surgery is usually ruled out if the tumors are located deep inside the nasal cavity.

Paranasal sinus has various triggers but the polyps and small blood vessels growth which result due to the sinus can be a threatening symptom.

Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinus Cancer are most commonly found in people between the ages of 45 and 85.
