Thank you for your query.

1. Kindly upload a close-up image.

2. Describe the growth in detail such as when it appeared, any history of trauma, the color and texture of the covering skin or mucosa, whether it is broad based or on a stalk, whether it is tender on touch or bleeds and so on.

3. Is it increasing in size? It should be a relatively simple job to remove (excise) it and have it checked (HPE).

4. One possibility is that you are mistaking a normal inferior nasal turbinate for a growth.

Awaiting your reply
