Former Navy Diver had deviated septum (90% deviation), corrected at Fort Meade, MD., in 1997. to open sinus passages for easier valsalva clearing for deep diving. The nose was broken, I have the complete medical files. Today years later, an unknown foreign object is now present and getting larger. It's position is in the tip forward corner of left septum. It is actually causing rouge color an distortion to distol exterior of nose. Is uncomfortable, I touch it too often, and want it out.

Have the nasal irritation checked out
I would not assume it is a stitch. It could be a mucosal lesion such as a papilloma or otherwise. Have it checked out by an ENT.
