Clinico-Epidemiological Evaluation of Patients with Sinonasal Masses Attending a Tertiary Care Hospital in Jharkhand, India

Background: The nasal cavity can have a variety of masses that set it apart from the rest of the body. Nasal and paranasal sinus masses are prevalent in clinical practise. The study’s goals were to analyse the clinico-epidemiological profile of nasal masses in patients who visited the ENT & HNS OPD at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi from January 2013 to December 2015, and to categorise the nasal masses based on their proportion of occurrence.

Methods: The goal of this retrospective study was to evaluate clinico-epidemiological data from the ENT Department’s admission register at RIMS Ranchi from 2013 to 2015. The total sample size for this time period was 240. The templates were created with MS Excel sheets, and the analysis was done with SSPS software.

Results: Based on a three-year data analysis of 240 patients, we discovered that nasal masses were more common in the 20-year-old age group (52%) and in males (68.4%), that the majority of the patients were tribals (72.9%), that the majority of them were from rural areas (60%) and that the majority of them were diagnosed as antrochoanal polyps (37.9 percent ). The most prevalent presenting complaint (85.8%) was nasal obstruction, followed by nasal discharge (52.9 percent ).

Conclusions: Antrochoanal polyps are the most frequent kind of nasal tumour, affecting mostly tribal men in rural Jharkhand and causing nasal obstruction. For benign lesions, surgery is the therapy of choice. Certain benign tumours have a high risk of malignancy, whereas others can have locally damaging characteristics and malformations.
