Caption

Sinus polyp. Coloured frontal X-ray of the skull of a patient with a polyp growth (yellow, lower right) in the left maxillary sinus. The polyp has developed from the mucous membrane that lines the sinuses. The two maxillary sinuses, like the other paranasal sinuses of the facial bones, are hollow spaces inside bones. The maxillary sinuses are spaces (black, centre left and right) inside the maxilla (upper jaw bones or cheek bones), and lie either side of the nose. The nasal bones (orange and yellow, centre) and the eye sockets (black, upper right and left) are also seen. Polyps can turn cancerous and are usually surgically removed.
