    Nasal Polyp

    Nasal Polyps are fleshy swellings that occur within the nasal passage, and though they can grow large, they are not cancerous. Read more →

    My sons nasal septum was damaged by a cpap machine being fitted tightly when he was in the neonatal unit. As a consequence he does not have a nasal septum and I was wondering if I could obtain advice on what procedures are available to rebuild his nasal septum or who I can speak too to obtain advice. He has visited a NHS plastic surgeon but I wanted to see if I could get some independent advice. Thanks.

    Does he have problems related to it? What is your concern? What problem does he display?

    Hi Judith, My son doesn't have a problem related to it. His nose tip is not supported so kind of hangs down. I would say his problem is more cosmetic. We were given two options to rebuild his nasal septum. The first was to remove some skin from his stomach side and apply it to his nose and hope this skin naturally attaches itself to his nose. The alternative sounds a bit horrifying whereby they will take skin from behind his ear over his head and attach it to his nose. This last option has a better success rate. What I wanted to know was which option would give a better natural finish. I don't want to put my son through any unnecessary pain but he wants it done as his pears at school are now starting to ask him about his nose which is starting to annoy him a lot, as well as bullying as a result of him being different. And if he does want to go through with it I would rather he did a procedure that gave the better as natural as possible finish. So could do with advice of different options available be it NHS or private. He would then need a second operation to ensure both nasal holes are similar in size. Thanks, Sukhi.

    His nasal septum surgery appointmentioned has been fixed for first week in Feb 2016. His plastic surgeon has recommended the first option as he believes it would be easier for my son than the second option. I would like further independent advice on this. If you email me, I can email you by return a mobile number to contact me on as I would be happy for you to contact me on either my email address or mobile number. Thanks, Sukhi.

    Hi. I also suffer from excess hair on my jawline and upper lip. I went to see my doctor who prescribed me a cream called vaniqa. This significantly slows down hair growth, although will not remove it. I found that this worked on my upper lip, although not on my jawline. You wont see a difference until about 6-8 weeks. I think you should give it a go. Make an appointment with your doctor, as this costs a fortune if you buy it over the counter. Hope this helps

    I have suffered what can only be described as a nasal drip for the last 3 years or so. I constantly have to clear my throat or else it starts to effect my voice. Then I have to cough up this horrible green gunk. I have tried so many nasal sprays over the years but nothing works. the doctor just keeps giving me different sprays to try. It is so annoying, not just to me but to everyone around me. Btw I suffer from Asthma, Underactive Thyroid and Barretts disease too. Help

    I have a lump/growth under my toenail of the big toe at the top right corner of the left foot. It is very tender and is sore all the time. I cannot wear normal shoes as the top of the shoe puts pressure on the area and causes great discomfort. The nail is growing normal from the bed but is raised at a 45 degree angle over the growth. I also have an infection on the other side of the toenails edge as it is being depressed into the flesh causing it to be ingrown. Using fucidin cream on the infection to keep it at bay but not sure what to do for the lump/growth. I keep the free edge of the nail trimmed to below the growth so it does not grow over and at an angle. Doctor said I will have to have the nail removed but that seems a tad drastic. I would like to leave that option as a last resort. Would it be possible to have the lump/growth removed and not the nail or would the nail need to be removed to treat the lump/growth?

    Hello all appreciate hearing your posts! I have recently developed a nasal perforation due to the use of fluctocasone (a nasal decongestant). I saw a ent doctor and had surgery to close it. For the procedure a mucosa flap was cut, rotated, and stitched into place. The procedure unfortunately did not work. I am seeking a second opinion and having the size of the hole monitored. Currently it is between 5-6mm. My question and concern here is does the hole get bigger over time? Thanks!

    hey i have a simaliar problem and cnt stand it any longer... have u tryed laser? im thinking of havin it done but want it tgo work!!!

    Hi, I live in Australia and I have a Large Hard Lump in my left nostril that I have had for the past 2 1/2 - 3 years that started out fairly small and is now getting that big that when I use my clap machine at night the air can hardly move past it and my nasal mask rubs and digs into it and make it hurt more. I haven't had any bleeding but it is always sore and itchy. I don't have any nasal piercing and I don't think it is a polyp, it is just inside my nose and now extends up the nose on the top and outside area (On the inside of the nose) if you understand what I mean and at night it keep me away cause is gets so itchy and sore. I also have problems when I lay down, as my nose on one or sometimes both block up to a point I cant use my mask at all. If it is only block on one side this side can change, it isn't always the same side. I went to my Doctor and he didn't seem concern only told me to buy a nasal spray that I couldn't afford to buy. I don't know what to do, it is become a real problem to me, both the lump and the blocking. I can't prop myself up either as I suffer with major pain and need to turn over a lot, and if I do sit up it takes forever for my nose to unblock again. Does anymore have any suggestions as to what it could be and anything that can be done? I am on a Pension so expensive choices are out. All help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Seriously, if the polyps are visible without any thing like an endoscope then you'll notice a difference in your entire life if you get them removed. I just did and I'm 18 and my life has gone from being sick all the time to being more healthy than I can ever remember.

    hello I have the same issue I use soft nasal dilators and find they stop this at night such as MegaVent Universal Nasal Dilator or Max-Air Nose Cones I also use Ponaris nasal oil during the day to keep it moist and stop drying out.

    It could be a nasal drip, you can get prescribed nasal sprays from your doctors. I have this and whenever you get a cold most of the time you will get a nasal drip which gives you thrush on the tongue thing is the white stuff, the feeling something is on the back of your throat and bad breath.

    i think you need to go and get it checked out, because usually nasal polyps that bleed are signs of cancer or nasal cancer. Just as a precaution because i had a nephew who had nasal polyps and it bleed so, the doctors did a biopsy and found out it was cancer.Also, get checked out for cystic fibrosis because nasal polyps might be a symptoms of cystic fibrosis. By the way cystic fibrosis is a life-shorting illness that kills young people, nasal polyp is a sign.

    I had upper lip lhr which burned me i now have course peach fuzz which grows in different directions and it has also caused nasal hair growth. this is very upsetting can i correct this. my lip line is very red still so i can't wear lipstick.

    Had this problem for years till an ENT doctor told me to douche my nasal passages with 3x teaspoons of sea salt 1x teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda into 2 pints of boiled water. You need a nasal douche and it needs to be done at least twice daily to begin with but it healed my nose and made breathing much clearer.Just look on the internet for tips on nasal douching and how to do it correctly. i didnt think it would work as i had tried everything but its amazed me how something so simple has cured such a horrible problem. Give it a go....i bet after a week you will be a lot happier with your nose.

    I'm a crohns patient and I do domestic cleaning for a job Since taking azothiaprine last year for my crohns I have suffered with severe nasal discomfort , crusting, bleeding. I have tried everything from naseptin nasal cream to saline solution to steroid creams etc. I have just been on an 8 week course of prednisolone for my crohns and my nose problems still there! I just can't understand why it won't clear! I have been under private ENT doctor and he still can't fathom what the problem is. Could it be my crohns? Or is it more likely to be nasal septum perforation from using cleaning products ? Someone please help me! Just anything to relieve the pain and runny nose would be a god send

    Hi, I´m 52 and I have not tasted or smelled anything for over 20 years due to nasal polys. I have had numerous sinus cleans and 4 nasal polyp removal operations to clear the passages and sadly the stuffiness recurs, especially if I drink alcohol and after a cold and can stay for up to 3 months, so I don´t drink. I live in fear that they will come back, as the surgeon said that he cannot operate again as all the flesh inside my nose has been removed, apparently, the polyps have roots that dig deep into the bone. My Danish friend gave me a nasal spray ZYMELIN which I use occasionally and very sparingly, its excellent for me and gives me relief.

    Sarah, try NeilMed nasal rinse. You can get it from Amazon. Try the starter kit and you'll see it will near enough sort you out. Cleaning out your nasal passages is like a secret nobody tells you about. it's really bizarre. And it is a cheap enough way for you to continue using it. You will be surprised at how much it will help you. Good luck, Sarah. xx

    I also have no sense of smell this 5yrs, what is the point of eating when u can't taste your food properly!!! So annoying, had 2 x nasal polyp removal ops - the only thing that works for me is steroids!!! I would also like to know, if nasal polyps are food related??? There must be some solution to this problem!!!!

    Colette asked a question on 2 August about nasal blockage going from one side to the other. I have suffered from this for years and have been using Sinex nasal decongestant lately which clears it and lets me sleep. I'm concerned that I shouldn't use this long term but cannot find where legitmate answers from medical people are to the questions raised on this site.

    I have just had my second Fess and Polypectomy operation to remove polyps. Steriods does give you your sence of smell back and taste for a while.But was told at my 6 wk check up that i would have to be on a steriod nasal spray for life and i am only 43 years old. Having just come into the hay fever season things are even worse. So I sympathise with everyone who has nasal polyps .

    Please - Is the Doctor who advised effectively "atanding on one's head" to apply nasal sprays correctly aware that neither Beconase nor Nasofan applicators are designed to work when inverted? I suspect this is true for the majority of nasal spray applicators. I believe there has inadvertantly been a severe case of misinformation.

    You can get these products cheaper online. CB12 is only £8.99 on chemist direct, It's £15 in Boots. Not tried this yet but will report back. Tongue cleaning gel, a tongue brushe, flossing, electric toothbrush with good toothpaste will all help. I'm going to try a nasal flush spray to try to clear my nasal drip problem. Also, drink plenty of water to keep hydrated

    for a hole of 5-6 mm you may be able to have a septal button fitted... Whether or not the hole gets bigger can depend on a number of factors, whether or not you clean out your nose and whether or not there are any other reasons for the hole - fungal, bacterial etc... The worst thing you could do is pick your nose or clean out aggressively with tissue / wet wipe, this will likely enlarge the hole... with a hole of your size a button could likely be successfully fitted and would hopefully help stop any further bleeding or crusting issues you may have...

    Thanks for the response! I am hoping it does not getting any worse.
