Tumours can be life threatening for several people affected by them if left untreated and sometimes this happens when they are mistaken for minor conditions. In many cases lack of awareness and required diagnosis can leave people with heartbreaking consequences.

71-year-old Editha Dadores from Philippines is devastated after a tumour mistaken for sinusitis ravaged her face. She experienced pain in her nostrils four years back and doctors gave her medication for the common condition.
