Lump on nose 2
I consulted a Gp about the lump on my nose and she said that the cartilage on one side had started growing outward that accounted for the lump. Can a plastic surgeon fix this- or must I see a facial-maxillo surgeon.I really want to get it removed- as it causes me embrassment.

Dear Nose,

A plastic surgeon will in almost all cases work together with an ear, nose and throat surgeon on such a procedure. Your nose is a functional part of your anatomy - any surgery done must take into consideration your ability to breath after the operation, and therefore these two people should be assessing your situation together.
