No tumor: The brain is encased in the cranial vault and can not result in bleeding from the nostril. The mucosa of the nose can induce bleeding. The nasal cavity extends in the facial region to the ethmoid sinuses.

Patient had cauterized her nose in ER but her nose still bleeds any remedies such as grape seed oil might help if put inside nose thanks in advance ?
Nose bleed: Hello, i would recommend an afrin (oxymetazoline) soaked cotton ball be placed in the side that was cauterized. Replace this as needed.

Please skip the camphor and just use a warm mist humidifier. ...Read more
