2. Stuffy nose after tumor obstruction when there are nasal congestion. Often unilateral or persistent.
3. Tinnitus and hearing loss, etc. If the tumor is located in the pharyngeal recess, eustachian tube extrusion mouth cancer, early often tinnitus, ears closed, hearing loss embolism misdiagnosed as otitis media or otitis media based services.

7. Cervical lymph nodes of nasopharyngeal cancer is that the early transfer of the top group of deep cervical lymph nodes, the upper front part of it is the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle, large and small, can be linked to a number, hard, rough was nodules, and skin adhesion, but in advanced deep tissue adhesions often associated with difficult events. The development of cervical lymph nodes from top to bottom, until the supraclavicular area. About half of the NPC patients away to hospital for treatment for neck masses.
8. Nasopharyngeal symptoms of distant metastasis is the most common site of bone metastasis, lung, liver. Bone metastases in the pelvis, spine, limbs, the most common. Clinical observations, as the cervical lymph nodes and distant metastasis significantly increased chance of distant metastasis rate was 4.8% – 27%, the autopsy found that up to 76%. More performance for bone metastasis and other bone pain, difficulty breathing performance of lung metastases, hemoptysis, etc., liver metastasis to liver pain, yellow plague and so on.
