I have a hard bump inside my nose that has gotten bigger and has moved further up in my nose over the past month. It hurts to touch, that nostril is bloody (no nose bleeds, just bloody), and I've been stuffed up. It is too far up my nose to see so I'm not sure what it looks like. Should I get this checked out?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Its not possible to comment on the lump in nose with out examining it. it could be a polyp or an inflamed mucosa or a deviated nasal septum. Only complete otorhinolaryngological exam will tell the difference.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
