I have a small tissue growth on the inside of my nose.  I thought it was a scab of some kind at first.  But it will grow, fall off (if disturbed by constant blowing)then grow back.  Could it be some form of a nasal tumor?

Could be a nasal polyp. These do grow/shrink, but never fall off. Or could just be dried up sticky mucus.

While you have a growth, an ENT should be able to quickly tell what it is.

i have a small growth in my throat near my left tonsil
and i've been assured its nothing

if it grows and shrinks, that does not seem bad, but seek imediate help if it grows and doesn't stop

I also have a small growth near my left tonsil. It seems to gradually be getting bigger. Should I see a doctor? If it keeps growing what will they do? Is it harmful?

Heya, I  went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago for a small growth near my left tonsil as well and told it was a polyp. I was told they will generally not remove it unless paid for it privately (mind you this is coming from the UK). if it grows big enough to obstruct your eating or breathing they'll probably remove it though.
