Septum Issue

Hey everyone, wasn't sure where on the forum this would go so I thought I'd ask it here. Basically for a long time my nose has been kinda screwed up. Broke it when i was i think 8, (im 28 now) and my septum has been kinda screwed up since (deviated). Recently I noticed a hole (maybe quarter inch wide near my nostrils (up a little bit) in it, I guess it's called a perforated septum. I've seen where people with drug use or other issues may have this happen, but nothing really matching my issue. Never used drugs, and don't know of any real reason this would happen. I have a bad habit of occasionally picking it, and since my septum is sensitive it will bleed from time to time. Would this cause the hole? Is it going to keep getting larger, and should I have it checked out or just wait for it to stabilize? Has anyone else had experience with this type of thing, and if so what did you do for it? Any advice is appreciated.
