Angiofibroma is a non-cancerous growth that takes the form of small, red, brown or skin-colored papules on the nose. It appears as an elevation of skin that can be anywhere between 0.1 to 1 cm. In its most severe form, it can become an aggressive vascular tumor and lead to one-sided nasal obstruction and recurrent bleeding.
HOW IS ANGIOFIBROMA DIAGNOSED?
A physical examination along with a CT scan or MRI scan can successfully diagnose Angiofibroma.
HOW IS ANGIOFIBROMA TREATED?
In many cases treatment may not be required. A surgery may be recommended to treat the tumor. The tumor is excised by external or endoscopic approach. Medical treatment and radiation therapy are only of historical interest. A procedure called embolization may be done to prevent the tumor from bleeding.
