Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query, Bump on the nose is usually seen in a condition called as rhinophyma. It can be removed by radiofrequency ablation. However I would like to see a photograph of the lesion. This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and a better line of management. Please upload a photograph of the lesion. There is an option to do so on right side of query page. Waiting for your response. Thank you
