About Nasopharyngeal Cancer Screening
In the United States, routine screening for nasopharyngeal
carcinoma isn't done because the disease is rare. But in areas of the world where nasopharyngeal carcinoma is much more
common, for instance in southern China, doctors may offer screenings to people thought to be at high risk of the disease.
Screenings may include blood tests to determine whether a person carries the Epstein-Barr virus or careful examinations of
the nasopharynx using a tiny camera attached to the end of a flexible tube (endoscope).
