    I'm not familiar with this type cancer but I am a cancer patient. I have run into several great areas to help figure this out. I have used a magazine I received at the oncologist that has great resources. The site is www.patientresource.net or call 816-584-8227 ext 26 to get a free copy. It has resources throughtout the USA. The totally best magazine with entire guidance is Caring4Cancer Check at any oncologist office and see if they have it. It is free. Also the website has videos and etc. www.caring4cancer.com This site has been my life saver on this board and chatroom with ACS. They have a number that is 24/7 and are extremely helpful. Once they even researched for me and a real nurse called me back and talked about 30 minutes. The ASC number is 1800-227-2345 and is fantastic. I will see what research I can do because I work with middle schoolers for 30 years and love the preteens. YOu are being a wonderful aunt. Angela

    I did some quick research:
    The spelling is Nasal Paranasal Tumors
    The best site I found was from the Mayo Clinic which I have personally used quite a bit. Just copy and past this site to read
    http://www.mayoclinic.org/nasal-paranasal-tumors/
    If you look at the bottom of the page, there is a link for Treatment of Children & Adolescents
    This next link is more medical
    http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/478999_2
    If you look to the left of the article, you will see about options for surgery/chemo etc.
    This is a good site from the National Cancer Institute
    http://www.cancer.gov/templates/doc.aspx?viewid=A92D8C73-D5C6-49CD-95D9-CFC647C3DC60&version=0
    If this does not open, go to www.cancer.gov and put in the search
    If you look to the left of the site, you can find a place"get more information from NCI. I see they even have a live chat that you can actually speak with a professional. I'm not sure what part of the work you and your nephew are from but there are a ton of resources to tap into. I hope this helps. If you need more help, email on the site. Angela
