Bloody Nose

Recently when I dig in my nose with tissue I notice bright red blood on the tissue.  I told my doctor about it and she said that it may just be that Im digging to hard.  It stopped for a little bit and now its doing it again.  It never drips out, I only notice it when I dig in my nose.  Please lend me your thought on what I should do.  Could this be some type of cancer

Hi.  Your doctor is probably right. The nose bleed is probably due to your frequent manipulation.  If you have a condition where your nasal lining is chronically inflamed, like allergic rhinitis, this would make your nasal lining very fragile and susceptible to bleeding when manipulated.
