The inner part of my nose, left nostril only, keeps getting painful buildups of mucus. Can remove but hurts and is bloody. What is this?

In brief: Time to see ENT

What you describe is usually due to a foreign object in the nose--but can be due to polyp/growth.
Should have a ENT eval and scope (in-office) to determine cause of discharge and irritation leading to bleeding.
