Symptoms found on the face include abnormal facial movements,
weakness, acne, flushing, lumps and facial pain.
Some of these facial symptoms can occur from problems within the
nervous system, such as weakness, pain or abnormal movements.
Some of the facial symptoms can reflect local disease, such as skin
cancers, abscesses or sinusitis. Some may reflect distant disease
such as carcinoid or thyroid disease.
The important thing to remember is that understanding the underlying
cause of your facial symptoms may be crucial. Education of patients about
their facial symptoms improves the chance of obtaining the right diagnosis
and obtaining prompt and correct treatment.
