Question: Swelling in the nasal area


meroney - Mon Aug 23, 2004 2:09 am

Hello,

I have a what looks like a swelling mucel of some sort in my right nasal, it looks realy big, what is this?

Sometimes allergies will cause swelling in the upper bridge of the nose, do you think this could be the case?
Kirsty_Oz - Mon Aug 23, 2004 12:15 pm

does it cause pain? have you notice a reduction in your ability to smell? does it slightly fluctuate in size? do you sneeze more often?

if you answered yes to all but the first one it sounds what I have.... its not dangerous but if it gets obstructive it can be removed- however it does grow back. I have been told that a contributing factor is where I live....

well I didnt notice it till last night, but my allergies have been crazy since im 5 months pregnant and cannot take my medicine.

I have been sneezing like crazy and stuffy all night and the dryness makes my nose bleed everyday and that is why I was looking up my nose last night

was to see how irritated it looked when I noticed on the right side what looked like a swollen mucel chunk in my view

it doesnt look normal

Dear Meroney,

Nasal congestion and stuffiness are very common with pregnancy. If you are not experiencing any nasal blockages or difficulty breathing, I would recommend that you call your doctor now and let him/her know about it and see whether he/she would like to see you now or wait till next visit to take a look at it, but your doctor has to be notified about this and the daily bleeding.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and I hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M. D.
