Just recieved some bad news. My younger sister has what the doctor described as a huge growth in her nasal passage. Not sure yet if it's squamous cell carcinoma of the nasopharyngeal OR squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal vestibule.

She will have results from the latest biopsy in about a week. I'm pretty worried but am trying to put a strong face on for her. The little I've read about nasal cancer hasn't been too encouraging. She is going to be admitted to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton Alberta Canada.

Has anyone here dealt with this or know others who have? Alot of the stuff I read on the web is confusing. I don't know what stage it is yet but she says the cartlidge in her nose has moved over.

Thanks in advance.
