I have a very hard (harder than rest of bridge), raised area of skin inside of my nose. You might call it a lump but it is more a raised surface with very hard skin. On the bridge. I have had it for about 3 years. It doesn't bleed. Doesn't get bigger. Certainly if it is bigger since I first noticed it it increases in size very marginally. I have no other symptoms. It is relatively smooth but not quite as smooth as the inside of the nose. Comparing each nostril it is not raised very much off the skin but it is there. It is not sore. When investigating this it seems that sometimes I can peel a small bit of whiteish translucent skin from around the edge of it. I have been to the doctor today and appointment has been made at the hospital. I wasn't worried until I decided to check out symptoms online and cancer popped up. The doctor had no idea.
I would hope that if I'm still symptom free 3 years later it is not cancer. Anybody have any ideas?
Maybe me constantly touching it and pulling a small bit of skin off of it all the time has meant it's remained. I'm pinning my hopes to that anyway. I'll see what I can do about a picture and post it up.
Appreciate the replies. Just as long as it isn't cancer. Can't see how it could be but you never know. Hopefully I will get the appointment soon but in this country (Ireland) it could be months, if that is the case I will go private and get it seen within a few weeks.
