Right side of nose hurts, when I touch and open my nose. Had some unexplained bleedings. Help?

You need an exam: These three things: lump in groin, rectal blood, and rash on back are probably not related to each other, but they could be a serious condition. The lump could potentially be cancer as could the rectal bleeding. You should get these checked right away. Don't be afraid, though, since it is more likely that the rectal blood is from hemorrhoids, and the lump in the groin is probably a lymph node. ...Read more
