In brief: Yes, several
There are many different benign and malignant tumors of the nasal cavity/nasopharynx, though outside of common polyps, they are relatively rare.
Diagnosis is usually made by a biopsy through a scope (usually by an ENT surgeon in the us). Some can be quite serious. If you are worried, a visit to your doctor is in order.

In brief: Yes
Head and neck cancers of a variety of types can develop in the nasal cavities.
Actually they grow from the cells that line the cavities or invade from tumors in surrounding structures most commonly.
