Nasal and paranasal tumors care at Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic doctors provide expert, personalized care to those with nasal and paranasal tumors.

Your Mayo Clinic care team

At Mayo Clinic, care is directed by ear, nose and throat specialists, also called ENT specialists or otolaryngologists. These specialists work in the Head and Neck Cancer Center with other specialists, including neurosurgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and radiologists. Other professionals are included as needed.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic doctors use the latest treatments for nasal and paranasal tumors.

New technology allows Mayo Clinic radiation oncologists to carefully plan and deliver radiation so that cancer cells are killed and healthy tissue nearby is spared. This reduces the risk of side effects during radiation therapy. Radiation oncologists use specialized radiation treatments, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy and proton therapy, to precisely target tumor cells and reduce the risk of side effects.

Mayo Clinic surgeons are highly skilled in minimally invasive surgery techniques, including minimally invasive skull base surgery. They also have extensive experience performing complicated reconstructive operations to restore your ability to eat and speak after surgery.

Mayo Clinic doctors will work with you to review all of your treatment options and choose the treatment that best suits your needs and goals. The range of treatments offered to people with nasal and paranasal tumors includes surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy and other medicines.
