    Bump inside nose, bleeding
    Njskirace48 posted:
    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?
    Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
    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?
    Njskirace48 responded:
    No, the bump was not the source of the bleeding. The bleeding stopped before the bump formed
    Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
    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.....
    Njskirace48 responded:
    Is it dangerous? Or should I just be okay with time?
    Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
    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.
