How To Deal With Lumps In The Nose Of A 6 Year Old Child?
My name is Devi. I have a child who is 6 years old now 1 SD. And my child’s nose has a small lump. But I haven’t checked with an ENT doctor but I still go to a general practitioner. Is there a possibility that it is a polyp? And what is the solution to treating it without having to have surgery because he is still 6 years old? thank you
From the information you have conveyed, the lump in the nose requires a direct examination to determine the level, nature of the lump, and the steps for handling it. Therefore, if the results of the examination and treatment of your family doctor have not received a positive result or the lump on the nose is still there, then you should visit your family doctor again or ask for a second opinion to your ENT doctor. Without re-control and direct examination, it is not certain what cause this complaint was, whether due to polyps, mucosal inflammation, infection of the hair roots of the nasal cavity, or a dilated nasal choncha.
With direct examination or re-control, it is hoped that the doctor can re-evaluate this complaint, and if necessary, investigations may be needed, such as X-rays.
Operations must be performed based on the indication, so that if the diagnosis has been confirmed and it does not require surgery, then surgery is not necessary.
For now, you can advise your child to avoid foods and drinks that are risky, such as ice, fried foods, or salty snacks.
That is the information we can convey, also read the bumps on the nose.
