What will happen if someone constantly presses on their nose bump?

I had a nasal hump. And some psychological issues. I would just look in the mirror and HATE the hump. Obviously I was only 16 I couldn't get surgery. So I just kept pressing on it.....but eventually I had trouble breathing. Now I am almost 18 and the trouble breathing has not gone away? What happened? Is there a solution? It's truly ruining my life, but I went to ENT's and they said my septum is NOT deviated...

You sound like you have a challenging breathing issue to address, but I
would not recommend a surgery if an anatomic cause cannot be identified.
