A 51-year-old female asked:

Ive always had a small bump on sides of upper nose but lately one side looks bigger. could constantly taking deep breaths(due to back issue) & excessive yawning daily cause that or would those repetitive actions not change bone or cartilage in nose?

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described is not likely to be related to yawning or breathing. The lesions could be intradermal nevi. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!
