What is paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity cancer?

In this type of cancer the tumorous cells are located on the paranasal sinuses tissues and the nasal cavitiy tissues. The paranasal sinuses are little hollow spaces around the nose, coated with mucous, which contain mucus producing cells and amplify the voice. The nasal cavity is the nose passage through which the air reaches the throat when one breathes.

There are various paranasal sinuses: frontal sinuses, maxillary sinuses, ethmoid sinuses and sphenoid sinuses.
