Sinus cancer: Sinus cancer is quite rare. Cancer, by its very nature, grows in such a way that it does not respect other tissues and it does grow. Some cancers grow slowly and others grow quickly. It is certainly possible for a sinus cancer to develop over a short time frame. A biopsy can help your doctors understand the "tumor biology" to know if it is aggressive and fast growing our more slower growing.

Sinus cancer is rare in all age groups, but it typically more common the older we get. It would be quite rare in a 20 year old
