I am not big on nostril knowledge, but my two nostrils are pretty asymmetrical.my right nostril is much more round than the left, and I rarely ever breathe through my left one. I used to get nosebleeds a lot, but none lately. My nose is round and in general I just don't like it. Is the asymmetrical nostrils a medical problem?

Correcting asymmetrical nostrils...
Depending on the angle of view, many individuals possess significant asymmetry in their noses. Typically, this is not a medical problem and is therefore not covered by Insurance. Sometimes, a nostril asymmetry can cause a breathing problem. One way to test for this is to perform a forceful inspiration through the nose. If the nostril collapses, blocking airflow, then this could be an external or internal nasal obstruction and possibly be considered for insurance coverage.
