What is the extra lump of flesh in the nose that obstructs breathing?

Q: If there is an extra lump of flesh inside the nose, which obstructs breathing, what do you call this sickness and what is this flesh? Is there any cure?

A:This may either be due to enlargement of the turbinate (which is a normal structure in the nose) or the formation of a polyp (extra growth). I advise you see an ENT specialist who will be able to tell what the problem is. The treatment naturally depends on the diagnosis.
