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.
