Detailed Answer:
Hii. Good afternoon. Hope you are doing good. I need to ask few queries. Is he having sneezing, rhinorrhea, headache, snoring, mouth breathing, daytime sleepiness, choking spells at night? It seems from the history that he is suffering from rhinosinusitis that may be due to an allergy, any infection or any other mass obstructing the nose or nasopharynx. You should definitely attend an ENT surgeon. He must underwent some flexible endoscopy to see the nose,behind the nose and to see whether he had sleep apnoea or not. You should undergo CT paranasal sinus which also gives a picture of ur sinus. Start taking steroid nasal spray, antiallergic table and steam inhalation. You should not apprehend that he had some cancer because swelling in neck is mostly due to lymph node due to some infection. Be positive, consult ENT surgeon,do CT PNS,flexible endoscopy and wait for the results.
Get well soon. Please inform me if you have some queries.
