I've been having trouble breathing out of my left nostril, so I finally shined a flashlight down it to inspect. This is the first time I've ever looked in my nostrils, so I'm not sure what's normal for me, but I apparently have a reasonably large pink mass in my left nostril that I believe is causing the breathing blockage. There are no masses present in the right nostril, which has been behaving perfectly. I want to believe it's temporary internal swelling, but it's been 4 months. Help?
More Than 4 Months Post Rhinoplasty. Recently Noticed a Pink Mass in One of my Nostrils Stifling Breathing. Insight Needed?

You may be seeing a polyp, an enlarged turbinate or a pyogenic granuloma or deviated septum. An evaluation is needed to determine the problem.
