The cartilage inside my nose is red and getting redder.

The cartilage inside my nose is red and getting redder. I am not sneezing I have no fever I have not been sick and my nose is not running. I discovered this by accident we're putting on make up. This is just on one side. I had a basal cell carcinoma removed by Mohes procedure ayear and a half ago but that was external. Internal and it looks angry and has me worried. Should I be worried? She I see ENT or other?

I have a red spot on my nose that really hurts when I touch it. It is at the tip, just left of the tip. I rolled over on my nose in my sleep about a week ago. It is possible I broke some cartilege doing that? I actully think it s getting slightly better, after a week or so. There is no pimple , just a round red spot that hurts from the inside to outside of my nose.

I had a basal cell cancer on my nose 17 years ago. I had MOH s surgery. I had a plastic surgeon repair immediately after I get checked for skin cancer at least once a year I m concerned the spot on my nose might be the skin cancer again. It is red in exact spot. I have been to my original dr. And dr that did my surgery to show them My nose throbs at times and looks swollen. I went to a nose Dr that my specialist recommended. He said it doesn t look like a suspicious lump but cartilege is growing. He mentioned I might want to see a plastic surgeon if it continues. Any suggestions? Could it b sinus infection? It throbs at different times.

I am interested in getting a nasallang piercing which is extremely rare. It looks like two nose rings but it s actually one bar going straight through the entire nose. Since it s rare, I can t find any information on it. I was wondering, would a needle and a bar going through that middle part destroy or do any damage to the cartilage? Or is there anything dangerous to the nose with the piercing?
