Customer Question
I have been having...

I have been having trouble with my nose and have had a scan done and been refered to Fardin Eghterdari in Canberra and have an appointment on 4th April . The right nostril has been dis charging clear mucos for somme weeks but today it felt as though a lump was in that nostril. After showering 15 minutes ago I had a look in the mirror and it appears to be a Blister with a red spot on it. Last night and this morning a tiny amount of blood appeared. I cannot breath thru my nose and have been using a spray to try and help with minimum help. Should I put up with it for another couple of weeks untill I see the specialist or try and get into my G P Tomorrow ????

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

The lump became noticible today and it is soft but it is nearly hanging out of my nostril

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

About the nose , I have had polyps removed some 58 years ago

You need to go to your GP tomorrow.

This needs evaluation.

This can be sinusitis and/or rhinitis.

There can be infection of the internal lining of the nose which may need a course of antibiotic.

You may do cold compresses and take Ibuprofen.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
