Hi! If your son has a history of chronic sinusitis, frequent nose inflammations, or allergic rhinitis, he may have a nasal polyp.
It is a non-cancerous growth, that is a product of frequently inflamed and swollen nasal lining.
Polyps, usually, appear at the middle part of external wall of the nose, since there are located most of the sinuses openings.
In very rare cases, this lump could be a nasal meningocela.
