Why Do I Always Feel a Heavy Pressure at my Nose Bridge?

Most of the days I would always have this heavy pressure on my nose bridge. The strong pressure is where my nose bump is. I had this nose bump 16-17 an now I'm 18 and will always have pressure on the bump. Is the pressure happening to me because of the bump?

Heavy pressure the nasal bridge

  A nasal bump  is composed of both bone and cartilage and does not usually cause any pain. Pain and pressure in the nose is usually cause from sinus related issues, and a CAT scan of the paranasal sinuses may be in order if this is been chronic in nature.

Why Do I Always Feel a Heavy Pressure at my Nose Bridge?

            I would not expect the reduction of the hump to affect this sensation, but you may consider the rhinoplasty for hump reduction from the cosmetic point of view.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Dorsal hump does not give pressure

A hump on the  nasal dorsum does not usually give the pressure. The pressure is likely from congestion inside the nose. You should see an Otolaryngologist to get an evaluation. Regards
