2. Tinnitus

Tinnitus is usually described as a ringing in the ears but can be applied to any sound heard without an external source. While tinnitus isn't deadly, it can be a frustrating sensation to have to live with. Because the nose and throat are so closely linked to the ears, a nasopharyngeal tumor can affect your hearing. That said, tinnitus is rarely the lone symptom of nasopharyngeal cancer.
