Well, I went to ENT...she said that she thinks it's some kind of infection, gave me some nose drops to put in nose and nose gel to prevent bleeding. I mentioned I saw smth about leukemia online, she didn't say anything, just laughed.

I wouldn't be concerned over mild isolated nose bleeds.  I would be concerned about evidence of an inability to clot which wouldn't just show up as a small amount of blood in your nose.

My GP laughed at me when I told her I thought I had MS - gotta love doctors! I think it's safe to say you're just fine. I've been having minor blood in my nose recently after not having a nose bleed since I was a kid! I've determined it's b/c it's been a long brutal winter so my nose was dry. Since the weather has warmed up I haven't seen any more blood (fingers crossed)! Do you feel relieved??

That and various other signs of an inability to clot such.  Isolated bleeding on one area of the body usually means something is going on in that area of the body...not something systemic.

I asked her if my nose is dry, she said it's not. But I guess with leukemia I would be bleeding a lot although I don't kniw much about that disease.

ENT rules out any other serious condition but leukemia.

The inner lining of the nose is filled with capillaries.  Sometimes with blowing, dry air, sinus issues, or just rubbing nose a lot can cause some bleeding.

Why not just get a blood test and put it rest?

I am not actually afraid of leukemia anymore, although my nose is now bleeding again...because it is not really a symptom of it without any other...

I am afraid of something unknown cause I don't know what to be afraid of really...

Ding Ding...that is the correct answer.  It was actually really insightful.  Your mind is searching for something to worry about...a vessel to pour all your anxiety into.  That's why it's so important to get some professional help with this...and I don't mean drugs...I mean therapy.

Problem persists, although there are only traces of blood when I blow my nise, it's not like it's bleeding heavily. Not really afraid of leukemia since I don't have fatigue and bruises. Not really in panic either, just some annoying feeling in the back of my mind that lowers my mood.

Can ENT specialist see if there is some nasal polyp or in worse case tumor when she looks at nose?

I still get some blood in the morning when I blow my nose, but I went to ENT 4 days ago, so I wonder, can she see any of these things, or suspect of them?

Nasal polyps or a nasal tumor would be causing a lot of other symptoms. If you were experiencing any of those symptoms, or if a polyp was visible on exam, your ENT would be ordering additional tests. 

My son gets nosebleeds constantly and to alleviate his fears, we once did an experiment where we dropped a few blops of red food coloring on a tissue so he could see how far it spread.  One little drop made a 1/2-inch stain.  So a tiny amount of blood can look like a scary amount during a nosebleed because of the capillary action of cloth or paper fibers causing the blood to spread.  Maybe you are rubbing your nose at night without realizing it and that's why you're seeing blood in the morning?  If it's just a tiny amount, I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.  Best of luck.

Thank you for your response, I appreciate it!

On a scale from 1 to 10 my worries are now around 3, so very manageable.
