Hi Ulfaniaaa,

Thank you for asking

Need to clarify, what kind of benign tumor do you mean? What are nasal polyps? Where is the location, is it inside the nasal cavity or outside? What does it look like? How long has it been appearing? How is the color? The consistency?

There are many types of benign tumors that occur in the nasal area. If the tumor is located inside the nasal cavity, one of the most common benign tumors is polyps.

Nasal polyps originate from excessive growth of nasal mucosa to form a stubby lump that is reddish in color like flesh, has a soft consistency, and bleeds easily. Frequently, polyps only appear on one side of the nasal cavity, although they can also appear on both sides.

These polyps are strongly suspected to occur due to excessive mucosal growth that is triggered by ongoing inflammation, for example in people with allergies, asthma, cystic fibrosis, or Churg-Strauss syndrome.
