Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Female/46-55 age group - C/O pressure in sinus, pain in the ear, glands, eye pressure, discomfort on swallowing - on Prednisone >
MRI - impression or findings are of Lymphoma or cancer; the Radiological markers as seen on MRI must have been matching the findings as noted hence remarked, and in such a situation I would like to take another opinion ASAP and go for biopsy and definitive treatment as soon as possible. This is to avoid further complications.
There may not be any point on missing on the most precious factor called ''the TIME''. Please go for further tests and definitive treatment fast.

It may not be just a polyp as it would have been noted on MRI.

I hope this answers your query and helps you to get an early definitive diagnosis and proper curative treatment..
