Bump on nasal bridge after injury, bone like growth, pain in nose. Ways to remove it ?

Bump on nasal bridge after injury. A few weeks ago I landed on my nose (on hard concrete), soon after I experienced a bone like growth and pain on my nose. I assumed this was just bruising however, it has been a few weeks and I am still experiencing pain and my bump on my nasal bridge is still there. I have seen two doctors and they both prescribed pain killers to help with the inflation, thinking it was a cartilage problem, this has made no affect. I m thinking it could be calcuim deposit, is there a way to remove this because it is causing my great pain and i find it is pleasing aesthetically unattractive

Hi, welcome to HCM.
Bump is possibly a local haematoma formation. Bruise will not appear as a bump. Also calcification is seen in any chronic process not in acute trauma.
You need to consult board certified ENT specialist for evaluation. Drainage of bump or haematoma may needed depending on size and symptoms.

Hope i have answered your query.

Regards.
