Blood clots coming out of nose. Not able to breathe. What are the risks? How to get cured?

My mum has large blood clots coming out of her nose . She has been putting pressure on the nose and they bleeds eventually stop, but it forms a clot and she can t breathe, so she then dislodges the clot and the nose bleeds again. The clots are very large and I was wondering if they would cauterise her nose or if maybe it is something more sinister which should be investigated. She doesn t have any other symptoms. Her GP told her to go to the hospital and have it cauterised.

Yes , it can be something more sinister and you should show her to an ent doctor as soon as possible before the bleeding becomes massive and more difficult to control.
Please dont delay and take her to the doctor immediately.
