A large-scale study of the association between biopsy results and clinical manifestations in patients with suspicion of nasopharyngeal carcinoma
The Laryngoscope, 07/11/2012
Hsieh CC et al. – Although nasopharyngeal (NPX) mass, epistaxis (EPI), and neck mass (NM) were significant to identify suspected nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), the diagnostic capabilities of combining EPI, NM, and NPX were still low. A large number of noncancerous biopsy results were obtained due to lymphoid hyperplasias often being mistaken as NPC.
