Can a nose break if pressed or twisted and if broken is there any treatment to reshape it ?

Dear doctor , if the nose is pressed or twisted hard by one s own hands or other s hands, will the nose break?? If yes, which portion of the nose will break-- nasal bone or nasal cartilage or both? Will the nasal septum also break? Can the broken part be treated and brought back into the original shape, size and structure?? Please clarify me.

hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
well with too much traumatic force there are chances of fracture in your nasal bone structure and the nasal septum is made up of both bone and cartilage so to answer your question the cartilage part would be the easier part to break and the treatment would be corrective surgery if it is severe if it is mild it would heal on its own if you have suffered a trauma it is better you consult a doctor immediately.
