Bump inside nose, bleeding

Over the past two months, I had a nose bleed about every two weeks, it has now stopped. But I have a small bump near the tip of my nose or the inside wall of my roght nostril. I also have a small but most likely unrelated sore throat. Should I be concerned even though the bleeding has stopped?

It depends on the nature of this "bump". Unfortunately, I have no way of examining your nose, so you will need to see your medical provider so that you can be properly diagnosed. Are you sure this bump is the source of the bleeding?

No, the bump was not the source of the bleeding. The bleeding stopped before the bump formed

Pimple-like masses can form inside the nasal passages -- often these are folliculitis (an infection of one of the hair follicules) or even a deeper infection called a furunculosis. Get your medical provider to take a look.....

Is it dangerous? Or should I just be okay with time?

I don't know....If I can't see it, I have no way of making this type of determination. This is why that I suggested that you see your medical provider.
