Customer Question

Hi

I have three cysts under the skin on my nose which though not unsightly are now protruding and my nose looking is a little plump. They appear as creamy/yellow colour smooth bumps. They are active I am sure as they are becoming red around them. My doctor on a visit last year said that this was nothing to worry about and just leave alone. My nose now feels sore all the time and feels like I have pins and needles most of the time.

Any thoughts please.

Dr. Cameron :

hello

Dr. Cameron :

welcome to the chat

Dr. Cameron :

are you still there?

Dr. Cameron :

What sort of doctor did you see? A GP?

Dr. Cameron :

Are they inside your nose or the outside?

A GP

JACUSTOMER-py5xve1p- :

A GP - OUTSIDE THE NOSE

Dr. Cameron :

Hi

Dr. Cameron :

Thanks

Dr. Cameron :

Sorry I did not see your reply

Dr. Cameron :

I understand your concern

Dr. Cameron :

There are a couple of options- these can be granulomas, sebaceous cysts or basal cell carcinoma

Dr. Cameron :

The nose is a high risk area for cancer and these can be basal cell carcinoma lesions, even if they are reddish

Dr. Cameron :

Dr. Cameron :

If they are making your nose sore, they need to be seen by a dermatologist

Dr. Cameron :

You may need to have them biopsied- or if they are simple sebaceous cysts, then your dermatologist can resect them

Dr. Cameron :

But a qualified specialist, like a dermatologist needs to do this for the best cosmetic results

Dr. Cameron :

I would go back to your GP and ask for a referral or consider going private if they are being obstinate- because getting these checked out sooner than later is key

Dr. Cameron :

I hope that this was helpful

Dr. Cameron :

please leave positive feedback if it was :-)

Dr. Cameron :

hi did you see what I wrote?

Dr. Cameron :

hello?
