Cartilage Inside Nose
Will smiling very wide, damage the nose or the nose cartilage? Could it hurt the nose or the nose cartilage?
Cartilage is a specialized type of tissue found in joints and areas that two bones come together. It is made up of specialized cells that live in the midst of proteins and sugars that absorb and release water similar to a sponge. Healthy cartilage helps decrease friction in joints, absorbs shock and protects the ends of the bone. Degradation of ...Read more

After rubbing my nose alot, skin on upper nose feels slightly swollen(not noticeable by looking). Some tenderness, but bone feels stable. Nose broken?
Skin irritation: Rubbing one's nose should not cause a fracture (broken nose). It usually requires a fairly hard hit on the nose or nasal bridge to cause a fracture. What you are describing sounds like skin irritation and some minimal trauma from the rubbing. It may also be due to whatever is causing you to rub your nose so much. ...Read more
Are the nostril parts of your nose (the part people get a nose piercing on. not the septum) considered soft tissue or cartilage or what?
Broken vs bruised nose? I fell into an object last nite. Nose /swollen / painful to touch. Inner eyes are bruised. Small knot on nose
May need Xray & exam: The more important thing is that you are checked for injuries such as an orbital fracture and for a septal hematoma. A nasal bone fracture is probably not itself very important. But fractures of the orbit can cause problems with eye movement, and septal hematomas can lead to a septal perforation which may cause a persistent sensation of nasal congestion. ...Read more

Nasal Sinus X-rays : The densities are either an active infection in the sinuses or most likely residual chronic inflammation from previous infections.

The best option is to review the radiographic evaluation with the ordering physician or an ENT specialist. ...Read more

Don't worry: There is little cause for alarm. The key is to leave it alone, don't fuss with it, pick at it, or put anything into your nose, and it will likely be fine. Stay away from nasal decongestant sprays (and especially do not snort Cocaine or other drugs). See an ear nose and throat specialist if pain or bleeding occur. ...Read more

Supposing you keep pushing on the tip of your nose really hard. Will the cartilage break and will the tip be lifted a little?
NO - STOP!: If you are thinking of trying do-it-yourself Plastic Surgery on your nose, I strongly advise against it! Your current idea is much more likely to cause bleeding, pain, swelling, and deformity at the end or bridge of your nose, not the lift you are hoping for. Plastic Surgeons spend close to 20 years in college, medical school and residency training - don't ruin your face and spend $$ to fix it. ...Read more
