ENT Specialist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding a growth which you feel at your nostril, this is neither painful nor tender. This irritates you very much you wish to pull it out.

I would like to tell you as per your versions it may be-

(a) Wart.

(b) Pappiloma.

(c)Septal polyp.

(d) Ethmoidal polyp reaching upto nostril.

My suggestion is that DON'T touch this , and never try to pull it out otherwise you will land up on trouble. Try to consult an ENT specialist for proper treatment.
