well it sounds like you need a rhinoplasty....if it is causing you some serious discomfort. have you seen a a plastic surgeon?

It sure sounds like an infection to me. If so, the longer that you let it go, and not seek an antibiotic and medical help, the worse it will get.

I typed the wrong surgery in my earlier post...I meant to say septoplasty. Depending on your problem they may have to go in a repair your septum (the part that attaches your nostrils in the middle). You really need to get into a doctor and see if there is an infection and get that under control to really see what is going on. In the meantime it might help if at night you use some breathe right strips.

Sounds just like a nasal polyp to me. They are benign growths, usually a reaction from an allergy. If it's a polyp, the chances of it being cancerous are negligible. Also, if it IS cancer you want it treated before it gets worse, right? Go to an ear, nose and throat
doctor and have it examined.
