CT scans demonstrate complete opacification of right maxillary sinus. Diagnosis?

Hi, I have just had my second scan for sinitus, first was an MRI and I was given antibiotics for 3 weeks, and second follow-up CT scan . Both scans demonstrate complete opacification of right maxillary sinus with no change after antibiotics and saline wash; and both scans demonstrate prominent thickening or mucus in both right air cells and frontal sinus. There is also a mass in the left maxillary sinus, which appears to be bigger that first MRI scan done 4.5 weeks ago. Have never had any sinus problems, no hay fever , allergies , etc. Am 46 yr old woman, on and off smoker. What are the possible diagnosis please. Thanks

THESE ARE ALLERGIC REACTIONS
YOU NEVER HAD SYMPTOMPS BECAUSE THEY ARE SUPRESSED BY NICOTINE

IF IT IS GROWING YOU CAN GO FOR FESS REMOVAL OF MASS THROUGH ENDOSCOPE AS NOW A DAYS IT IS OPD PROCEDURE
AND THEN GO FOR ALLERGY SHOTS FOR PREVENT ITS RECURRENCE
