bone deformity on top side of nose
I have structural problems of the side of my nose because of a chronic sinus infection, the bone seems to have been eaten away by the infection and feels bumpy and deformed. Is it possible for this to be repaired with surgery?

Dear Tom,

Yes, it can be repaired with surgery in most cases. You should consult an ear, nose and throat specialist.
