Nose cancer doesn’t really exist. Your nose is on your face and there’s cancers of the outside of the nose, which are really skin cancers. There’s cancers of the lining of the inside of the nose, which are really like other cancers of the mouth and the throat and the sinuses. And those sorts of cancers are typically cancers that are identified when you have problems breathing or maybe some bleeding from the nose, and are treated usually with surgery followed by radiation treatment.
