Ct scan shows as 'bilateral fronto ethimoid and maxillary sinus ' how it can be cured thru medicine or by operating?

Try medicine first: This ct shows probable infection in the sinuses (i say "probable" because you didn't include the whole report). This can usually be treated with medicines- antibiotics before you would consider surgery. You should see your primary doctor for help with this, and then an ENT doctor if medicine is not helping.
