Nose bleeding, tobacco user, cancer

hi, i have recently got my first nose bleed on the 17th of march, followed by one on the 20 and a 3rd on the 22nd of march. I never had a nose bleed before. I was an occasional chewing tobacco user however i recently went to the states for 2 months and increased my chewing tobacco intake. I have since cut back and am ready to quit. Cn chewing tobacco be causing this? if so could it be cancerous? I dont have any signs of oral cancer . Really wish i did not stat chewing in the the first place. Thanks

Hi, its nice that you are going to stop the chewing tobacco habit. There can be multiple causes of nasal bleeding and crusting with scab formation by nose picking is the common. Hypertension is the most common cause in the elderly. Cancer can be cause of nasal bleeding but needs to be evaluated and for that you need to see an ENT. So, do not worry, just see an ENT and get yourself examined in case you do not fit into the above two described categories. Regards
