Its very important to know what is that which starts with Lym ?.
After hemangioma it could be Lymphangioma, Lymph node,Lymphoma etc.
Treatment changes with the diagnosis.
For the first two Lymphangioma and Lymph node treatment is simple excision or antibiotics for lymph node.
Do not worry just discuss with your doctor.
There is less possibility of sinusitis being related to it.
