How long does it take for temporary dorsal hump from trauma to go down?
Doctor Answers 2
The bump could be soft tissue swelling, which will resolve in 2-4 weeks with ice and massage. But if you have broken your nasal bone, it may remain when the swelling goes down. I would have it looked at by a plastic surgeon at your earliest convenience.
Trauma to nose
Without seeing you in person, impossible to predict. If the bump doesn't resolve on it's own in the next couple of months, you will need to schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to have it assessed.
