What can cause a very very painful lump inside of my nose on the left side what is this very painful lump inside the left side of my nose

Most: Most painful lumps that arise acutely (quickly) in the nose are infected hair follicles or skin infections. If it has been there for a while, it may be time to have it evaluated as you may require antibiotics. Sometimes, these lumps may develop into abscesses requiring drainage.

Although extremely unlikely, tumors (benign and malignant) may arise in the nose and may cause pain.

Most treatment depends on the location, duration, appearance, and severity of symptoms. If it is close to the opening of the nose (vestibule) and it has been quick to arise (and present for only a short time) - warm compresses and pain medication (advil (ibuprofen) and tylenol) may help, however, if the pain is severe, or it has continued to worsen, I would advise an exam immediately to be treated appropriately. ...Read more

Uncertain: There are normal lumps such as turbinates, small deviations in the nasal septum, lower lateral and alar cartilages. Painful lumps may indicate infection. Polyps may also present in this fashion. This should be evaluated by an Otolaryngologist however to assess it's seriousness if it persists. ...Read more

Lump bridge of my nose: You say, that you developed a lump, which is very painful without touching? Is the skin red? What is the size? 1-2 cm.? have you had a recent cold or an infection? .

I had a cold this past week that I'm just getting over. Now, I notice I have a little hard lump at the tip of my nose inside my right nostril. It's painful to touch but if left alone pain will go away, I'm worried what this could be?

I had a cold this past week that I'm just getting over. Now, I notice I have a little hard lump at the tip of my nose inside my right nostril. It's painful to touch but if left alone pain will go away, I'm worried what this could be?

An infection: I suspect that this is from a bacterial infection (likely staph) which was likely introduced when you picked or blow your nose when you had the cold. See your doctor who may Rx you a topical antibiotic ointment for the lesion. Although your body may eventually fight it off, it may also spread if left untreated. ...Read more

I ve had a head chest cold for weeks and a few days ago a hard lump developed between the tip of my cheekbone and nose it is red and painful to touch it is very deep under the skin and the size of a chick pea?

May be unrelated...: ...To your recent chest cold; I would suggest that your doctor examine the lump as it could well be an abscess or perhaps something related to the upper teeth; something that comes up so quickly with tenderness usually suggests something infectious so your doctor would be the first person I would see. ...Read more

Pain, lumps, swelling, dizziness, spreading, worsens & couple of months are words & phrases that raise a red flag of a POTENTIALLY serious condition. Perhaps it's "all in your head" but, if so, this degree of anxiety should be taken seriously as well. I wish the best for you. ...Read more

I have a large painful squishy lump on top of my head, haven't had any recent head injury, its been getting gradually larger and more painful.

Likely benign: Possible sebaceous cyst, and unlikely to represent any type of tumor, but since this may be a localized nidus of infection, not a bad idea to have examined and perhaps excised, usually a simple outpatient procedure. ...Read more
