Hello .. Good night, I want to ask, there is meat as big as a coffee bean in my son’s nose hole, my child is 2 years old, and it seems like it is getting bigger and more covering my child’s nostrils, is that a polyp, please enlighten me as a mother very worried about that … 😢😢😢
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
There are several possibilities that can cause symptoms of a bump on the nose, including:
Nasal polyps, which are tissues that grow on the walls of the nasal passages, usually do not cause pain, are not malignant, have a soft consistency, are usually stemmed, vary in size (small to the size of the nasal cavity at risk of nasal congestion), may be accompanied by symptoms of decreased lung function
Nasal folliculitis, also known as nasal vestibulitis, complains in the form of an inflamed red lump or group, most often located in the opening of the nostrils, the most common cause is Staphylococcus bacterial infection, risk factors include the habit of picking your nose or blowing strong air through the nose
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (KNF) is a malignancy of nasopharyngeal epithelium, associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection (EBV), risk factors include genetic and environmental (eg consumption of preserved food, salted fish), complaints in the form of nasal congestion, nasal bleeding, headache, lump in the neck, decreased hearing function; very rare in children, only 1% of all cases of malignancy in children, more commonly found in the adult population group
In order to be able to know the conditions underlying the emergence of a lump in your child's nose and so that proper treatment can be given, you are advised to check your child to the ENT doctor or doctor. The doctor will perform a systematic history, physical examination, and investigation if found indications, for example: nasal endoscopy or CT scan. The treatment given will be adjusted to the underlying disease, for example: the use of spray drugs, drugs taken or injected, to surgery or radiotherapy if there are indications.
