Esthesioneuroblastoma or Olfactory Neuroblastoma

These are rare tumors that grow in the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses. They can be benign or malignant. Either can cause nasal blockage and bleeding, accompanied by pain around the eyes or nose, facial swelling, loose upper teeth and double vision. People frequently exposed to harmful chemicals are at greater risk of developing nasal cavity cancers, including olfactory neuroblastoma.

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the-art facility for adults and children affected by olfactory neuroblastoma. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify and remove tumors with immense accuracy. These advanced techniques pinpoint affected tissue with millimeter precision, enabling our surgeons to remove the tumor or reduce its size to unblock the nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses. Minimally invasive endoscopic approaches allow removal of tumor through the nasal cavity. Recovery is quicker, because no incision is made.
