Ethmoid Sinus question

Hope someone can answer a few questions related to the Ethmoid Sinus.

1. How would a ENT specialist examine the Ethmoid Sinus ?. I had one
examine me by poking long thin tube down my nostril but he looked down rather than up ,and I thought the Ethmoid Sinus was between the eyes ?.

2. Would it be possible to spark of Sinusitis by staying in damp mouldy premises ?.

3. Would Ethmoid Sinusitis likely make the corners of eyes (where they are
at top of nose) dark, as I have never had dark eyes before ?.

4. How can I get this diagnosed and cleared ?

Thanks for any replies.
