I have a lump in the skin inside my nose!
Lumps inside the nose are fairly common and………….I hate to repeat myself, but although cancer inside the nose is rare, it can occur. If this doesn’t go away in 2-4 weeks, it should be checked by your doctor.
About 10-20% of the U.S. population (I’m not sure about Europe, etc), is a Staph carrier up in the nose. If Staph (bacteria) is present , it may cause painful bumps. A culture (Q tip in doctors office with culture media) can tell whether that is the case. If positive, a special nasal ointment is usually used to treat. Medical personnel are at particular risk.
Other things to think about…….herpes (cold sores) can occur up in the nose as can simple things like irritated hair follicles. Bottom line: If it isn’t gone in 2-4 weeks, get checked by your doctor.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
