nose bleeds
Dear Doc, I want to know when you should start worrying about a nosebleed? I know that it can be serious, I even read that it can be a tumour, leukemia etc. My husband has got terrible nosebleeds and the doctor told him that its in his sinuses. I am a little concerned, because its very hard to stop the bleeding. Can there be something really wrong? How will I know?

Concerned, the best would be to see an ENT specialist as I seriously doubt that a sinus problem can cause enough bleeding to make you worry about it. Good luck.
