Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
What about pain?
What about on the other side ie right upper side of the nose.
That is the nasolacrimal gland from which the tears come out. If there is visible swelling or no pain it is normal.
If you have visible lump or pain it could be inflammed and very common as well.
