If you have signs or symptoms of an orbital tumor it may need resection / removed and it is critical to consult a Rhinologist immediately for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. The initial evaluation will consist of an examination of the eye(s) and a nasal endoscopy (looking inside the nose with a small camera). Next, an MRI of the orbit is performed to determine if there is a tumor mass in the orbital cavity and exactly where it is located. For orbital neoplasms that are medial to the optic nerve we can safely perform transnasal minimally invasive endoscopic orbital tumor resection. This approach is done through the nose without any visible scars or incisions. The key is choosing an approach tailored to the severity, size, and location of your eye tumor. There is not one single solution that is correct for every patient, and that’s why Houston Advanced Nose & Sinus is unique.
