Can the cpap mask break or damage the bridge of your nose?

I have been on a cpap machine for 15 years. And about three days ago I woke up with pain on the left side of the bridge of my nose. Now today, the bridge of my nose is slightly swollen and extremely painful. I haven't had a broken nose so I cannot compare. Any info would be helpful.  Thanks in advance.

Discuss with your doc, there may be strategies or adjustments to reduce pressure on the painful part.
