Has large growth on uvula. Cancerous tumour? Suggest
my 10 year old daughter has a large growth on her uvula which has been ruled out as polyps or HPV. We discovered it 3 months ago and she waited to see an ENT specialist who thought the nose bleeds she'd been having may be linked to it. She had an MRI scan 2 days ago and I'm told they still don't know what it is. She goes into hospital for a biopsy and possibly complete removal tomorrow but we are terrified at this stage that it may be a cancerous tumour. Would appreciate your opinion please.
Hi, Cancerous growth from uvula at this age is extremely uncommon. From soft palate many a time carcinoma develops but not at this age. So do not worry at all. It will be a benign ( non-cancerous) entity. The exact diagnosis will be evident after histopathology examination.
