What is Nasopharyngeal Cancer?

The journey toward complete remission begins with knowing essential information about your disease.

Nasopharyngeal cancer is a rare form of head and neck cancer. It arises in the nasopharynx — the upper section of the pharynx, behind the nose. The majority of nasopharyngeal cancers are nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), which is the most common cancer in the nasopharynx. In the absence of treatment, this malignant disease can impair one’s ability to breathe, speak, hear, as well as cause other complications.

Nasopharyngeal Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

Carcinoma is cancer that begins in the cells lining the internal and external surfaces of the body (epithelial cells). There are three subtypes of nasopharyngeal carcinoma, all of which originate from epithelial cells lining the nasopharynx. The cells of each type, however, look different under a microscope:

  • Non-keratinizing undifferentiated carcinoma of the nasopharynx
  • Keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma
  • Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma

Other types of nasopharyngeal cancer are:

Primary Nasopharyngeal Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Lymphomas can sometimes develop in the nasopharynx. They are cancers of immune system cells called lymphocytes.

Primary Nasopharyngeal Adenocarcinoma

Adenocarcinoma often starts in the minor salivary glands in the nasopharynx. But these cancers are more common in the nasal cavity and oral cavity.

Nasopharyngeal Cancer Symptoms in Men and Women

The common signs of nasopharyngeal cancer often include:

  • Lump in the neck (most common)
  • Blood in the saliva
  • Nosebleeds
  • Nasal congestion
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Hearing loss
  • Face pain or numbness
  • Headaches
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Sore throat

If you have persistent signs and symptoms, consult your physician right away.

Cause of Nasopharyngeal Cancers

Gene mutation that leads to nasopharyngeal carcinoma is not entirely understood, though factors that increase the risk of NPC have been identified. They include:

  • Infection with Epstein-Barr virus
  • Chemicals released in steam when cooking salt-cured foods
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Tobacco use
  • A family history of nasopharyngeal cancers

If you have risk factors for nasopharyngeal cancer, discuss prevention with your healthcare provider.

Diagnostic Tests for Nasopharyngeal Cancers

Early diagnosis is key to improving your nasopharyngeal cancer prognosis and life expectancy. The following tests and procedures play a role in detecting NETs.

  • Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) testing
  • Complete blood count (CBC) and other blood tests
  • Ultrasound of the neck
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Chest X-ray
