Spontaneous pain in patients with maxillary sinus carcinoma in relation to T-classification and direction of tumour spread.
Spontaneous pain was one of many complaints on initial examination of 845 patients with maxillary sinus carcinoma.
The pain was analysed; cheek, teeth, head and eye pain were compared with the T-classification and the anterior-posterior direction of invasion.
The incidence of the cheek, teeth, head and eye pain was 48, 39, 29 and 23 per cent respectively.
The incidence of both the cheek and teeth pain was increased according to the advancement of T-classification and invasion towards the posterior.
Head and eye pain was often referred.
In the localized posterior group which tend to be diagnosed late, spontaneous pain occurred in 15 to 48 per cent of the patients.
