Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that the polyps have increased in size. The blood may indicate that they are inflamed or infected.

Blood can also occur due to any inflammation or infection involving the nasal passages such as allergies or the common cold.
The headaches may be due to obstruction of the sinuses though there are other causes.

You should consider visiting an ENT doctor for an assessment.

I hope this helps
