Brief Answer: please meet your ent doctor! Detailed Answer: Hello! Bleeding from the nose, that too for around a year is pretty serious and needs to be thoroughly evaluated! I would like to assure you that it is unlikely to be cancer! as you dont have any other symptoms of it! It is more likely to be a sinus infection or an ulcer in your nose , which is causing the bleeding and is easily treatable with medications. Please dont worry, just meet your ENT doctor as soon as possible, he will do an endoscopy on you and guide you further. Take care
