Lumps Inside The Nose Accompanied By Decreased Smell And Shortness Of Breath When Tired?
Hello. I have tried many times and asked about this shortness of breath. On my right nose there was a strange red lump of flesh, then my smell was not as sharp as it used to be, my shortness of breath recurred when my body was tired or when the weather was cold. The doctor said that the first one I had inflammation of the polyps, but in the second doctor I was asked whether my family had asthma? Not. In the end, I was just given the usual shortness of breath medication, usually the medicine I bought at the pharmacy and my shortness of breath would always recur when I stopped taking the medicine about 1 month later. Da, if I have a cold, it takes a long time to heal, even for almost 1 month at that time. So please advise
Polyps are abnormal growths of tissue that arise on the mucous membrane of humans. Polyps can appear on the gums (gum polyps), nose (nasal polyps), and other tissues such as the uterine wall.

To find out the presence or absence of polyps, you need to do an examination directly by a doctor. Doctors can recognize the shape of polyps with a direct physical exam.
Polyps generally give symptoms such as =
stuffy nose facial pain or itching sensation. olfactory disturbance. Post nasal drip = the sensation of nasal mucus dropping through the back of the throat. however most were asymptomatic. If they are large, polyps can cause respiratory problems (blockage), not shortness of breath (asthma). Some of the conditions that can trigger polyps are severe allergies that cause inflammation of the nose, acute or chronic infections in the nose and sinus area.
Long-running colds can indicate allergies, sinus inflammation, immune disorders or other nasal disorders such as tumors, polyps and cancer of the nose. It is better if this examination is continued to an ENT doctor so that you can get a more thorough and targeted examination and can get a better explanation and appropriate treatment.
Use a mask when you have the flu, take decongestant drugs if necessary, keep the air humidity and the air clean in your room. If you have allergies then avoid triggering your allergies.
I hope this helps.
