Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have this cavernous sinus mass.
it could be malignant.
you need a good closed brain 1.5 or 3.0 tesla MRI scan with contrast to look at the lesion.
the cavernous sinus is a tough area to biopsy.
you need to see a neurosurgeon and radiation oncologist about this pass and have your case discussed at a tumor board for multidisciplinary discussion.
hard lumps on your cheek bones most likely not related to your cavernous sinus mass
cavernous sinus mass wrapped around the 3rd cranial nerve would cause blurry vision and eye muscle paralysis.
the mass itself growing can cause eye pressure.
even benign meningiomas or schwannomas can grow and cause local pressures.
external beam radiation therapy could stop it from growing if there are signs it is growing.
