This is Dr. David

a hard painless lump on the nasal septum most likely is a nasal polyp or cyst

you should show it to your GP doctor

if it bothers you, you should be referred to an ENT ear nose throat surgeon to see if they can have it removed.

your GP doctor may also try you on steroid nasal sprays to see if that can help shrink down the size of the polyp

let me know if you have other questions.
