Doctor insights on:
Nasal Cavity Swollen
Membrane inflamed: Your nasal cavities are lined with mucosal membranes that can swell and give you a congested feeling. Typically caused by seasonal illness or allergies, there are non-prescription meds you can use to help the symptoms. If you aren't sick, allergy testing may help you understand the cause of the swelling.
Nasal sprays: Sometimes, prescription nasal sprays are useful. Talk with your peds or see an ent.

Yes, several: There are many different benign and malignant tumors of the nasal cavity/nasopharynx, though outside of common polyps, they are relatively rare.

Space in nose: Not a problem. It refers to the space in and behind your nose. Cavity means a space. Nasal refers to nose. No treatment needed -- of course, sometimes it requires blowing :-).
Biopsy/histoath.: The diagnosis of this cancer is often made by lymph node biopsy, since the nasopharyngeal cancer ofthen presents with lymph node involvement. Otherwise, the patient will typically undergo a needle biopsy of this lesion, and when histopathologic information is available, a multidisciplinary discussion of the optimal treatment strategy will be undertaken.
Uncommon: These are uncommon cancers. They might be related to smoke or other exposures, but are not typical sites of cancer. There are about 2000 cases yearly in the us. I think that no smoking is the best advice. If you have some symptoms that worry you see your doctor. Is is likely to be something else.
Tinnitus causes? Not sure if it is a coincidence, but the right side of my nasal cavity is a bit stuffed up the last 3 days.
It's a coincidence: Tinnitus has several possible causes. If you're concerned, you should look up the differential diagnosis. In the absence of symptoms or signs referable to adjacent cranial nerves, I would be most concerned about hearing loss. A primary care doc can do a quick & dirty in-office hearing test or, if (s)he thinks it's indicated, can refer you for an audiogram & also possibly an electronystagmogram.
I broke my nose, my nasal cavity is runny and feels like it is on fire. I got it reset 5 days ago, and im using my meds what should I do?

See a doc: A healthcare professional needs to look up your nose and see if there's any retained food products that can be manually removed. Also, you may have developed an infection of sinuses. Either case, see a doc.
