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.
