In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
