My 65 year old father has a large dark spot on his lower back with small bumps on it. What might it be?

If one cannot get to a doctor, there are some eMedicine dermatologists who can at least provide advice via a virtual appointment by smartphone. ...Read more

Nasal polyps?: I'm having some trouble visualizing your description, but maybe you have nasal polyps? Regardless, a physician needs to evaluate you and examine the nose.
