the finding in my CT-SCAN was "hypoplastic frontal sinuses". i have headache ALL the time. what does it mean?

Small sinuses

Ct_scan
The CT films do not indicate a cause for your headaches and shows only a congenital variation of no consequence. If you have a constant headache, it is consistent with the syndrome of "chronic daily headaches" and could readily respond to treatment.

what is frontal hypoplastic sinuses?

Not a big deal

Head-sinuses
It just means that your frontal sinuses (located in your forehead) haven't developed as much as the average patient. This does NOT put you at a health disadvantage. The frontal sinuses tend to have the most variable anatomy and they typically don't develop until approx 12 years of age.

Can blocked frontal and ethmoid sinuses cause lightheadedness?

Yes

Lightheadedness
Can obstruct eustachian tube and even cause dizziness, plus the congestion feeling, and generalized lousy overall sensations. Saline nasal and sinus rinses can help, and on occasion, antibiotics break up the congestion.

Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

How can drinking water help clear mucus from frontal sinuses?

I doubt it

179361856
The presence of mucus in your frontal sinus is the result of a blocked naso-frontal duct. This ductile blockage is the result of a nasal infection. I do not think that drinking water will solve the problem although drinking water is good. The duct leading from the frontal sinus to the nose needs to be decongested. A nose spray, decongestant, or steroids might be considered as early treatments.

Inflammation mucosal thickening noted in the sphenoid and frontal sinuses. Meaning?

Don't worry

Head-sinuses
I presume these are findings from a CT scan. That is typical radiology terminology from a CT or MRI report, and CT scans visualize the sinuses very well. Mucosal thickening indicates that the lining of the sinuses looks thicker than normal, which may come from anything causing sinus inflammation: allergies or mild infection. The frontal sinuses are just over the eyes, the sphenoid behind them.

Dr. Rawan Tarawneh answered:

My frontal sinuses are very swollen and I have a bad headache. Is this an emergency?

See a doctor

Nausea
It is hard to tell if this is an emergency but you definitely need to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible. Sinus infections are commonly associated with a headache due to sinus pressure but may result in more serious neurologic complications . If you have neck stiffness, nausea/vomiting, changes in vision, speech, swallowing, or weakness, go to the ER immediately. If in doubt, go to the ER.

Is it common for the nodes in your neck to be swollen when you're experiencing Frontal Sinuses?

Swollen gland

Open-uri20130913-24229-3stut8
Likely what you are describing is something called LYMPHADENOPATHY, which is swelling and inflammation of lymph nodes. This can lead to pain and can be aggravated by movement, depending on the location of the swollen lymph node. Generally speaking, most lymphadenopathy is caused by infectious processes. This could be viral or bacterial. Frontal sinusitis can potentially be the cause in the neck
