Surgical resection with high-dose preoperative or postoperative radiation therapy.
For ethmoid sinus tumors (lesions are usually extensive when diagnosed):[1,2,3]
Generally, external-beam radiation therapy alone is used and produces better overall results than surgery.
Well-localized lesions can be resected, but resection of the ethmoids, maxilla, and orbit, often with a combined neurosurgical sinus craniofacial approach, is generally required.
If surgery can be done with good functional and cosmetic results, postoperative radiation therapy should be given even with clear surgical margins.
For sphenoid sinus tumors:
Treatment is the same as for nasopharyngeal cancers, primarily radiation therapy. (Refer to the Stage II Nasopharyngeal Cancer section in the PDQ summary on Nasopharyngeal Cancer Treatment for more information.) Concomitant chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be considered.
For nasal cavity tumors (squamous cell carcinomas), treatment preferences are either surgery or radiation therapy, which have equal cure rates:
Surgery or radiation therapy for tumors of the septum.
Radiation therapy for tumors of the lateral and superior walls. Concomitant chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be considered.
Surgery plus radiation therapy for tumors of the septal and lateral walls.
For inverting papilloma:
Re-excision for surgery failures.
Radiation therapy for radical surgery failures may eventually be necessary.
For melanomas and sarcomas:
Surgical excision if possible.
Combined surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are recommended for rhabdomyosarcoma.
For midline granuloma:
Radiation therapy to nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
For nasal vestibule tumors:
Surgery or radiation therapy may be performed. If tumors are extremely small, surgery is preferred provided that no deformity is expected and a need for reconstruction is not anticipated. Radiation therapy is preferred for other small lesions.[6,7] Treatment of the neck should be considered.
Current Clinical Trials
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage II paranasal sinus and nasal cavity cancer. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.
