Possible tonsil or sinus cancer

by Justonce - March 13 at 9:36 AM

Good morning, Aside from the attempt at pleasantries, it is not really a good day. I found a lump on my tonsil last night, after experiencing on and off again pain for the past six months in my right sinus, right side of my neck. I was treated for sinus infection late Sept 2018, which had progressed into my lungs. I had crackling and the doctor prescribed antibiotics. The meds seemed to work well, but the sinus spasms and pain started again in January with tingling down my jaw line to the base of my neck. It has now progressed around to the base of my skull, and shoulders. I tried taking more antibiotics, and they didn't help much. Today, I go in for assessment. I am 56 and relatively healthy, so quite concerned I have tonsil or sinus cancer. Aside from this news, I have a trip with my lovely wife planned for next week. I am hoping we can continue abroad but am fearful. Once again...

RE: Sinus cancer?

Good morning, Sorry to hear of your struggle. I hope to read more you how your diagnosis, and prognosis is developed. This sounds very similar to my story. I was treated in late Sept for sinus infection which affected my lungs. The antibiotics cleared everything but pain started soon after medication was used up. At approx 40 yrs of age, I was diagnosed with a sinus polyp, which the specialist left. I didn't think anything about it until just recently. I am now 56 years old, so much like you. Flash forward to February 2019, I now have sinus spasms and pain in the neck, cheek, and tingling down to my face to the base of my neck. Last night, while eating something, I sneezed and felt like I hurt the back of my throat. Upon inspection, I found a lump. I called my doctor to arrange a ENT specialist, and she is away. I am going to a clinic today, or may even opt for emerge department to get some answers. Much like you Raken, I have the tingling down my face and neck. The doc dismissed it in Sept as a sinus infection. I hope she is right. I will keep you posted. Be diligent with your health. Be strong!
