Nasal and Sinus Cancer Survivorship

After you finish your treatment, you’ll still need careful, frequent followup care.

We’ll develop an individualized care plan that includes:

  • A schedule of followup appointments
  • Exams and imaging as needed to check for signs of cancer
  • Monitoring and care for symptoms and side effects

Lowering your risk

Patients who’ve had nasal and sinus cancer are at increased risk of developing another type of cancer, including:

  • Mouth cancer
  • Throat cancer
  • Voice box cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Soft-tissue sarcoma

To lower your risk of developing a second type of cancer, you should follow these steps:

  • Avoid tobacco products: Ask your care providers if you need help quitting tobacco products and smoking. We have tools to help you.
  • Limit alcohol use: This means no more than one drink per day for women and 2 drinks per day for men. We can provide you with information on resources to help you quit or limit your alcohol use.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle: You can lower your cancer risk by:
    • Eating a healthy diet
    • Getting regular physical activity
    • Maintaining a healthy weight
