I have a benign follicular tumor in my nose. I have had a weird pressure in my nose but no sinus drainage at all and I have not been sick yet this year. It was always a little sensitive with pressure where the tumor is but now it feels like some numbness has spread from my nose surrounding my left eye and it has affected my vision. I can still see words so it is more like a pressure behind my eye. I am waiting for my Dr. to call back but until then if you can give me any advice I would appreciate it.
It is in my nose. Im still confused as to how it can fit where it is located. I will try my best to explain it.... It is at the very tip top of my nose.. maybe where the bone ends and before the "button nose" begins. I hope that make sense. I noticed something not right when it started to indent and change color a little bit, which seems strange for a tumor.
Thank you so much :)
It is confusing. I have never heard of it either. The weirdest part is it has indented my nose instead of pushing out like you would think. I have had a little difficulty breathing but not enough to really complain or maybe I got used to it. It has gotten bigger so I am hoping it is not in my cartilage. At least the indent has spread up higher on my nose. It is the most bizzar thing.
I now have the surgeon working with my insurance since I will have to also have plastic surgery.
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I really apreciate it :)
I am so happy that you are gong to have surgery!
I would *guess* that the tumor is pulling down so it must be also in your cheek as well?
Let us know how it goes and make sure you get a copy of the pathology.
Thank you so much :) I am happy to finally get rid of it. I just got the name of the tumor -Trical Epethelioma. I am not able to find too much on the internet about. I was also curious about it being in my cheek. I wish the Dr. would do a scan before the surgery.
Thank you and I will let you know how it goes :)
