Can you dislodge a nasal polyp by blowing your nose?
I have had mild sinus infections off and on for a year. Sometimes when blowing my nose, there has been slight bleeding, not long lasting.  Recently, while suffering from a cold, I blowed my nose and produced a soft, brown material along with mucus.  There were several parts to this matter, produced over a 24-hour period.
In researching online, it sounds like this may have been a polyp. Is that likely?  I am traveling and not planning to visit a doctor.  Cold is about gone now. No bleeding or other symptoms.
Thank you

It's possible to blow out a polyp, and it could be the cause, or result, of the sinus infections. At some time, you should eventually visit an ENT.
