Probably nothing : If you noticed it 10 years ago and it hasn't changed it's likely just a normal structure or scar tissue. Have your doc look at it at your next appt.

Rhinoplasty Lump: You should consult with your rhinoplasty surgeon. Lumps after surgery can be from scar tissue, permanent sutures, cartilage grafts or just the new shape of your tip cartilage. If the lump is painless and not growing, then it is likely benign. However, any new lumps in the nose must be evaluated to insure it is nothing dangerous. The best person to do this is your rhinoplasty surgeon.

Cartilage or scar: If it is unchanged for 10 years probably nothing to worry about but see your surgeon for a recheck.

Nostril lesion: have your nose evaluated by your surgeon.
