I believe I have had a nasal polyp for 5 years in my right nostril. I often get nosebleeds in this nostril. Is this to blame & what should I do?

In brief: See an ENT

Nasal polyps usually do not bleed.
See an ENT doctor to rule out other causes immediately.

In brief: Nasal Polyp

You should consult a ENT specialist to look in your nostril and find out what is making it bleed and what needs to be done.
Usually polyps are assciated with nasal allergy and you may benefit from nasal steroids and antihistamines and if it is causing obstruction then you may need surgery.
