Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that it could have been a nasal polyp which must be pedunculated thats why when you used to blow it , it would have lead to stretching of peduncle and you used to feel that mass coming out .

Hope this ends your anxiety.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
