Question
Hi, I have some sort of weird pain in my left nasal cavity/right under the tip of the nasal bone that is extra painful if I tap my finger on my nose. I am always more or less congested in my left nostril, quite often have a runny nose and always wake up with a stuffy nose. It's been this way for as long as I can remember. I do have a deviated septum so breathing through the left nostril is a bit of a challenge. What can this be? What are the symptoms of nasal cavity cancer?

Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The most likely cause of extreme pain under the tip of the nasal bone is furunculosis. It is the acute infection of the hair follicle in the entry of the nasal cavity.

Warm compress, painkillers and a course of antibiotics would help to relieve it.
Consult your doctor for confirmation and prescription.

Some of the symptoms of nasal cavity cancer are nasal stuffiness, headache, nose bleed, a lump and sometimes tightness in the ears.

I hope that answers your question.

Apply cloth soaked in warm water over the tip of the nose for few minutes several times a day.
Take painkillers also.
