Nose Bleeds And Brain Tumors

Check: Also have a complete blood count (CBC), to make sure that you have not become anemic from the bleeding and to check your platelets, which are the cells that help with clotting. If the bleeding is only a small amount it maybe from dryness, you can use over the counter normal saline spray. This also happens with nasal steroids. Have it checked with your primary care doctor ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im 19, my nose has been bleeding all day, and I have a lot of nasuea for past few days, morning and day, and im thinking I have a brain tumor, im scared?

I doubt you have a brain tumor, but see a doctor to allay your anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If you have afrin (oxymetazoline) nasal spray put a few squirts up the nostril. This works very well. ...Read more
