Big bump in nose

I have a big red bump on the middle of the inside of my nose.
It feels rubber like and is blocking my air passages. What is this called? And what is it?

Hi guys HB User
Re: Big bump in nose

Sounds more like a staph infection then cancer. Though it could also be Rosacea ("Rosacea

Often beginning as a tendency to flush easily, rosacea causes redness on the nose, chin, cheeks, forehead, even in the eyes. The redness may intensify over time, taking on a ruddy appearance. If left untreated, bumps and pus-filled pimples can develop, with the nose and oil glands becoming bulbous. Rosacea treatment includes medications, as well as surgery to remove blood vessels or correct nose disfigurement.")

Here is a link for staph infection: http://www.*****.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/staph-infection-cellulitis
