Cancers of the Nasal Cavity and Paranasal Sinuses
This chapter reviews the epidemiology of cancers of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. Cancers arising in the sinuses and nasal cavity occur rarely in the United States and in most areas of the world. In 2002, an estimated 2,000 people in the United States developed the disease. The incidence of sinonasal cancer (SNC) has remained relatively steady during the past twenty-five years at 0.7 cases per 100,000 persons per year, with a median survival of 5.7 years. The classification, demographic patterns, environmental factors, host factors, pathogenesis, and prevention of SNC are discussed.
