As you have sinus issues so possibly it could be due to simple causes like swellings of the glands inside the nose.
As if the ducts of the glands get blocked. The secretions collect inside and in time, there may be scarring and the secretions thicken to form lumps.
Other possible causes of the lump may include:
* Nasal polyp
* Recurrent bacterial infection in the nose known as furunculitis.
* It could be a benign growth in the cartilage such as a chondroma.
* Hypertrophy or increase in size of the turbinate of the nose.
Rarely rarely would anything be cancer here.
As you are suffering from last few weeks and now it is getting bigger in size then consult an ENT specialist for an examination for further evaluation and management.
I hope this helps.

And In case of polyp, chondroma, cancer further surgical excision may be required.
So consult an ENT specialist for an examination for further evaluation and management.
