Nose Related Disease

There are many different diseases that can affect the nose, some of which include:

Allergic rhinitis: This is a common condition where the lining of the nose becomes inflamed due to an allergic reaction.

Sinusitis: This occurs when the sinuses, which are air-filled spaces in the face, become infected or inflamed.

Nasal polyps: These are growths that develop in the lining of the nose or sinuses.

Deviated septum: This is a condition where the thin wall (septum) that separates the two nostrils is displaced to one side.

Rhinoplasty complications: This can include infections, excessive bleeding, or improper healing after a surgical procedure to change the shape or function of the nose.

Nasal tumors: These are rare but serious growths that can occur in the nose or sinuses.

It’s important to seek medical attention if you experience any persistent symptoms or changes in your nose, such as nasal congestion, pain, bleeding, or difficulty breathing. A healthcare professional can evaluate your symptoms and recommend the appropriate treatment.


Nose Related Disease List

Allergic rhinitis

Nose allergies are a common type of allergy that can cause symptoms such as sneezing, a runny or stuffy nose, and itching or irritation in the nasal passages. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of allergens, including pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and mold.


Sinuses are air-filled cavities located on either side of the nose. Due to allergies, colds, or bacterial infections, these may sometimes get clogged or infected. This can create various complications like headache, snoring or difficulty in breathing. In serious cases, a sinus infection may even lead to brain fever or meningitis1

Nasal polyps

Nasal polyps are soft, painless, noncancerous growths on the lining of your nasal passages or sinuses. They hang down like teardrops or grapes. They result from chronic inflammation and are associated with asthma, recurring infection, allergies, drug sensitivity or certain immune disorders1.

Deviated septum

A deviated septum occurs when the thin wall (nasal septum) between your nasal passages is displaced to one side1. It can be caused by a condition present at birth or an injury that causes the nasal septum to be moved out of position.

Rhinoplasty complications

Rhinoplasty complications include bleeding or infection which are rare1. Other possible risks specific to rhinoplasty include difficulty breathing through your nose, permanent numbness in and around your nose, an uneven-looking nose, pain, discoloration or swelling that may persist, scarring and a hole in the septum (septal perforation)2

Nasal tumors

Nasal tumors are abnormal growths that begin in and around the passageway within your nose (nasal cavity). Nasal tumors begin in the nasal cavity. Paranasal tumors begin in air-filled chambers around the nose called the paranasal sinuses1. Nasal and paranasal tumors form when a genetic mutation turns normal, healthy cells into abnormal cells
