Still worried about thing in my nose after doc.
« on: June 15, 2014, 09:18:57 PM »
So, I saw my doctor about the wart looking thing in my nose. He assured me that it was benign and simply referred me to an ENT to get it removed. He said it was a polyp at first then said granuloma after. Now the doubt is sinking in since this thing is lumpy looking and I thought polyps were smooth. I have no idea what the latter is and I have no desire to search to find out.

At least the relief lasted a few days...  :dazed:

An ENT will probably have a better idea of what it is, but your GP would at be able to tell benign from dangerous.  Generally, cancerous things and the like just appear completely different from benign growths in a lot of ways.  My doctor said you just get a feel for it after a while.  So I don't think you need to worry too much; just see the ENT and get it taken care of so you can forget about it.

Yea, that's what I keep reminding myself. As it is, fortunately or unfortunately, I stumbled across a site thad pictures of all kinds of things in there. Mine looks nothing like any of the bad ones. I think I'm just on edge because my girlfriend is working on the cancer chapters in nursing school right now. So I keep seeing this and that.

Just got back from the ENT.. He said it is either a wart or pyloric papilloma as I initually figured it was. Looks like I'll be going to the hospital to get it removed. He said something about a laser. Just hope that he won't need to pack it.
