In brief: Yes
Depending on the stage, possible therapies include surgical resection, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Many times the treatment will involve all 3. Check with your oncologist or ENT surgeon to see what's best for you.

In brief: Yes! Get opinions
Early decision matter in cancer treatment, so it's important to get multiple opinions.
One should be from an academic medical center. You will need an otolaryngologist (ENT) for a surgery opinion, and opinions from a medical oncologist and radiation oncologist. For more info go to http://www.Cancer.Gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/paranasalsinus/patient.

In brief: Many ways
There are many tumor types, but squamous cell carcinoma is the most common in this location.
Usually, an excision (surgery) is employed first, usually followed up by radiation therapy. Chemotherapy is not usually used for these types of cancer. The specific tumor type though, can change the type of treatment used.
