Recurrent minor nose bleeds with continuous headache, history of brain tumors, cerebral cavernous malformation and pituitary tumor. Allergy?

Hi, I am 43 for the past several years I get sudden minor nose bleeds along with a continual headache that will last a few weeks out of the year. It s not really at a particular time of the year could be during any given month. I will get a couple of nose bleeds (only from right nostril ) a day along with a headache lasting a few weeks. Wondering if it s allergy related. I do have a history of brain tumors Cerebral Cavernous Malformation and Pituitary tumor. I know the headaches can be an issue with the tumors, but are nose bleeds a separate issue?

Nasal bleeding have many causes. It is prone for epistaxis due to the rich anastomosis and presence of small blood vessels.
The most commonest cause is nose picking. Epistaxis happens due to trauma to the blood vessels.
Dehydration, rhinitis and hypertension are some of the other causes.
Epistaxis may be related to the malformation and tumors but it confirmation through diagnostic procedures.
