Good evening Ria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nosebleeds, or nosebleeds, can occur due to various things, including:
Tumors or cancer of the nose Excessive nasal mucus History of picking the nose too tight or too deep Dry air High blood pressure Dry and cold air The use of certain drugs Sinusitis
In common cases, cancer is actually not the first choice because there are so many other simpler possibilities. But in the case of your mother-in-law, with a history of her nasopharyngeal cancer, which one of the symptoms that often arises is nosebleeds, most likely what happens to her is still related to her cancer history. Therefore, we recommend that you take your mother-in-law back to the doctor where she usually has her check-up, especially since there are now additional complaints in the form of an enlarged abdomen. This enlarged abdomen itself may not be directly related to nasopharyngeal cancer, but can occur if the cancer has spread to the liver or kidney.
In the meantime, what you can do when your mother-in-law is bleeding is to try to sit her up, lean her head forward (don't look up), and squeeze her nostrils for 5 minutes then check if there is still blood coming out. If it still exists, repeat it for up to 20 minutes and if it still continues, visit the emergency room of the nearest hospital. So, hopefully answering your question.
