Biopsy/histopath.: The diagnosis of this cancer is often made by lymph node biopsy, since the nasopharyngeal cancer ofthen presents with lymph node involvement. Otherwise, the patient will typically undergo a needle biopsy of this lesion, and when histopathologic information is available, a multidisciplinary discussion of the optimal treatment strategy will be undertaken.

Physical exam: Typically it starts with a physical exam. A fiber optic scope can help visualize an abnormal area or mass and it can be biopsied. A ct scan or an MRI may be ordered by your physician if appropriate.
