Question: For a week or maybe longer I have been experiencing nose bleeds. For a couple of days and nights I had a foul smell like dead fish. Well as I was finishing up my work I blew my nose and I could feel something in the far back of my left nostril. I could not get it out and this smell made me overhaul by bedroom. i thought my dog had brought something in the house and it died. I thought it was a big hard booger. i don't know how to explain it. But i finally kept trying to blow it out and take it out with q-tips. It finally came out. It was a mass that was hard with a mucus tail. That was the smell. I placed it in a plastic bag and in another container. My husband could smell it when I awoke him to look at this mass.
