Hi,

Nasal or sinus cancer has 2 main symptoms:
1) Nasal Blockage
2) Bleeding or blood stained discharge.
Other symptoms as you have mentioned like running nose, cold, sore throat, coughing, dizziness and all are usually due to allergy or infection.
Hence I would advise you the following:
* Take anti-cold medicines.
* Decongestant Nasal drops.
* Anti-inflammatory medicines like Ibuprofen if it suits you.
Consult your Doctor for clinical evaluation, examination, Tests of Blood, CT scan of nose and sinuses; get started with additional medications as prescribed.
Take bed rest.
Plenty of oral fluids to maintain hydration.
If this is present problem then you have to visit Covid-19 center for proper investigations and an appropriate treatment.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
