    polyps or?

    My cat scan revealed my Brain was clear but I had mucosal thickening in maxillary sinuses and sphenoid ,I had been told I had polyps my question is how does one tell the difference between polyps in nose and tumours in nose, Silly me googled and scared myself ,as it said you cannot.I have had a camera down my nose into throat a few years ago and it revealed polyps, Anyone help with this and also any home treatments to help heal sinus infection would be appreciated

    If you're ENT said it is polyps, it's probably what it is. You won't be able to check on the net whether you have polyps or not, only specialists will be able to tell you.
    If you have doubts, go to see another ENT, get a 2nd opinion.

    How long have you got sinus infection for? What are your symptoms?
