Brief Answer:
Osteoma / CT/ Endoscopy

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

CT scan and Nasal endoscopy would confirm the diagnosis. A biopsy would also be required.

Osteoma which is a benign lesion of the turbinates is a common cause. Osteoma is not a cancerous lesion.

Even though the naked eye examination does show a growth but it needs confirmation via FNS. Please consult an ENT doctor in this regard.

If an ENT consultant examined the region and ruled out the need for nasal endoscopy then most likely it's not something serious. It could also be a deviated nasal septum which may present like this. If the DNS is mild and not leading to any obstruction symptoms then it can be followed withoutany intervention.

Yes, then there is nothing to worry about. As I said earlier the most common growth is an osteoma which in itself is a benign lesion and isn't cancerous.

So if it's asymptomatic then no further intervention is required.

Wishing you best of luck
