Question: I got a white round bump inside my nose on my septum. It started I thought as a cut in my nose. It doesn't hurt, but is hard and about size on 3mm in diameter. I am scared it is cancer; it bleeds sometimes.
i have an apt with an ENT in a week or so but driving myself crazy until then.

Hi,

Thank you for your query.

You have done the right thing by fixing an appointment with the ENT who will examine and, if required, remove it for a biopsy. Biopsy will the final answer to any doubt you may be having.

There can be a number of reasons for the bump that you are noticing but cancer will be the last thing in my mind. So I suggest that you wait for the ENT's opinion.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts of the case.

Wishing you all the best.

Regards,

RKK

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

I am a renal transplant patient. Surgery done 6 months back. After transplatation I used to take immuno suppresents like Pangraf, Cellcept and Prednisolon. Immediate after surgery my S.Creatin levels were 1.4, 1.3, 1.2 then 1.5 etc..After one month of when I checked my Tac level it was very high ie, 14.4. Then Pangraf dosage reduced for next one month.But there was no significant reduction in Creatin and then checked Tac level it shows 14.1. At that time S.Creatin was 1.7.Then stopped Pangraf and started Certican .25. A sudden increase in S.creatin and it became 2.6. My Biopsy shows ATN+ and other readings were quite normal. My Potassium and RBS are quite normal. Then started Neoral 50mg and tried 25mg, but again S.creatin level gets increased and now it is 3.6. My Doppler test parameters are normal. What would be the remedy on this problem??How it is happened like this? My donor is my brother. I am 42 Years old.
