Hi there, I am 30 yrs old and have a 3.5 cm bone tumor that is next to my left frontal sinus. Here are some cuts off my MRI for reference: http://robsaysrelax.googlepages.com/home
I have had a constant pressure headache behind my forehead for nearly 4 years now...quite disabling because it never goes away. It sort of feels like I have a soft ball sitting behind my forehead at all times, but I also feel pressure down in the bridge of my nose.
My neurosurgeons told me it's probably causing my symptoms but there has no race to operate for obvious reasons
I have also been seen by a very good ENT nasal surgeon who saw chronic inflammation in my nose and a deviated septum. I have a constnatly blocked nose, but very rarely do I have an actual sinus infection or runny nose. If I blow air into my ears it makes the pressure in my head feel better for a second. The ent seems to think if he fixed my septum and reduce the contact points it may head with my head pressure.
Now, my questions... Do you think the nasal surgery may help me, or do you think the symptoms are probably from the tumor pressing down on my left sinus bone? Do you think the pressure from the tumor is causing generalized turbinate disfunction or chronic inflammation? No actual inflammation was seen on my CT, just the tumor sitting there, thankfully it's not growing though. Do you have any ideas any at all please? Thank you
