Customer Question

I’ve been extremely squeezing my nose and now I have a bump

Hi Dr Hayat here.  Can I have a look at a picture plz

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture. But I was extremely squeezing my nose together just at the middle part of my nose. After two weeks of not squeezing my nose anymore I have developed a bump underneath the skin. What is this?
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 18 days ago.

It's very difficult to say without seeing it

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Why has it formed suddenly after two weeks
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Is it painful?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
It’s not painful
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

It could be some blood collection (hematoma) due to pinching or some or inflamed lining of nose

So you need to have nose examination to find exactly what you have

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
It’s definitely not blood collection the area I was squeezing was just above the tip of my nose I was squeezing my nose together. The bump is like a keloid bump but it’s underneath the skin
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Yes you might be right then. I would advise to get it checked soon to confirm the diagnosis for further management

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Why didn’t the bump form straight away why did it develop after two weeks?
Expert:  Zee J replied 17 days ago.

Sometimes things can develop slowly. So best would be to get it checked as soon as possible
