thanks for the query

With the progression of the mass you have described, it is very important to rule out tumor which could be malignant.
You need to see a doctor so that tumors of the rhinopharynx should be excluded.

A CT scan would be asked in order to adequately situate the extend, relation and origin of the tumor. Malignant tumors are usually associated with weight loss and altered general condition.

You should treat this as an urgent matter.

Hope this answers your query, if you have further query, i will be glad to help.
Best regards
