Bump On Nose
A bump on the nose, or a dorsal bump, can affect self esteem, especially when pictures are taken profile, as an undesirably shaped bridge, or dorsum, can ruin a photo. A bump on the nose can be genetic, or result from an injury, and is made up of excess bone, excess cartilage, or a mixture of the two. Other names for a bump on your nose include ‘Roman nose’ and ‘aquiline nose’.
Genetic – a nose with a bump, is a dominant trait that is inherited from parents. This trait can grow or change during development, becoming more pronounced.
Injury – trauma to the nose can result in the formation of calcium deposits and bone growth in the area that was injured, which can form a dorsal bump that wasn’t already there or make an existing one appear more prominent.
