I was just curious if I was able to get the lump removed from my nose after I broke it 2 years ago? (Photos)

Rhinoplasty for a broken nose
However it is unlikely the lump is totally related to the trauma and old photos would be a good guide. From what I can see you would need a full rhinoplasty to fix this if we are both looking at the same thing, ie the bump on the dorsum of your nose. You need a full assessment by a rhinoplasty specialist.
I hope this helps.
Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, can generally improve the appearance and shape of the nose.
Please see an experienced, Board Certified plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

Thank you for your question and photographs. Based on your photographic evaluation, you have a mild hump deformity which can be easily removed with a delicate rasping technique. You are an ideal candidate. Make sure you choose a surgeon board certified in either ENT surgery or plastic surgery or both and they specialize in cosmetic rhinoplasty. Best wishes in your endeavors!
Bump after nasal fracture
This is a very common concern after nasal trauma. As the nose heals, a callus can form in the area where the cartilage meets the nasal bones. This can be addressed through incisions inside the nose, if these are the only changes desired. If you were to want any changes to the nasal tip, further incisions would be needed. You would likely need an external splint for around 1 week after surgery, and there can be some mild to moderate bruising as well.
Revision, some advices:
After having analyzed all the info and photos provided to us, i recommend to perform a Secondary Rhinoplasty (not a tip revision) this means (basically) treat the nasal bones and the nasal cartilages.
Therefore i would perform a narrowing of the nasal base (nose osteotomy) and alar and triangular cartilage shaping.
