When patients experience symptoms, doctors recommend screening and tests for sinus tumors to diagnose the condition and determine the stage of the cancer. Each diagnostic exam begins with an assessment of the symptoms as well as an analysis of the patient’s personal medical history. With information on the patient’s overall heath and medical history, doctors can determine what may be causing the symptoms.
Doctors at Florida Hospital use a variety of screening and tests for sinus tumors. Depending on the patient’s condition, doctors may recommend one or many tests to get the most accurate diagnosis possible.
Screening and tests for sinus tumors may include the following procedures:
- Blood test
- X-rays or imagine exams of the sinuses
- Imaging tests of the chest
- Biopsy of the tumor
