Customer Question

Hi been thinking and for the last year my dentist has been having problems co pleating root can cal on front 2 thee th due to severe pain I was getting when root canal was opened, once through all this time I blew my left nostral and it was very blocked which I never noticed and this seemed t ease pain, left cheek seemed some times to be unconftable too. Now some time down line I have soreness in both nostrals , pain in right side of cheek , pins needles and numbness( intermittently in left of face and head, although I did hit my head a while ago, and bubble feeling top of nostrals , tightness round left eye , a feeling of wanting wipe sweat from both sides of nose, some times heat in face, severe night sweats which only stopped whilst I was pregnant or if I have had a few too many alcoholic drinks, and general tide ness, does this sound like sinus cancer. Had teeth xray again yesterday and no infection and dentist wants me to have a scan on my nose area. Also I have dryness in nostrals and top of mouth.

OK--have you had either a ct scan or an MRI of the head Louise?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ct scan 6 months ago was fine

And everything was clear including your sinuses?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It was after a fall so sinus never checked just head it's self
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK. No this doesn't sound like sinus cancer but I'd get a scan of your sinuses to look for chronic sinusitis and to look at the trigeminal cranial nerve for inflammation like I mentioned before--the trigeminal neuralgia. Let me know how it goes with the neurologist
