Nasal and sinus cancer in the upper jaw
There are several different types of nasal and sinus cancer in the upper jaw. Squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma are the most common types.
Squamous cell carcinoma develops in the mucus-producing lining (mucosa) in the nasal cavity, maxillary sinuses next to the nose, or the palate. The adenocarcinoma develops in the mucus glands in the maxillary sinuses next to the nose.
