Inverting Papilloma

Inverting papilloma are nasal tumors that originate in the mucous membrane in the nose. The tumors are aggressive, can become malignant, and may reoccur after removal. Symptoms include runny nose, nasal obstruction, sinus infections, headaches and facial pain.

Best in Care

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the-art facility for adults and children affected by inverting papilloma. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that use laser technology to remove tumors or reduce their size. These advanced techniques often minimize damage to surrounding tissue and result in less scarring and pain. With endoscopic approaches, the surgeon removes the tumor through the nasal cavity. Recovery is quicker, because no incision is made.
