For some years now iv noticed a small yellow bit of flesh which has formed inside one of my nostrils. It does not hurt or anything like that. Iv attempted to remove it but it does actually bleed if i try too hard.

Iv reaserched this and iv found nothing like what i have. Anyone have any ideas? Im a male teenager, have a relatively healthy diet and im quite fit.

Thanks in advance

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Get evaluated and examined, it could be a polyp or a hypertrophied turbinate. needs to be examined and managed accordingly.

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
