The inside of my septum is swollen on the other sie and is a big soft lump yet it hasnt gone down like ever, and ive had it for about a year. It doesn't hurt to the touch but it makes me self concious and i can't look at people straight on because i feel very concious and its really getting me down. Can anyone please tell me what it possibly is?

What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course

Have you ever had it looked at by a doctor? Unfortunately we can't tell what it may be via the internet- funny bumps and such are always best checked out by a medical professional in person.

(And for future reference, if you have a question not related to sex, perhaps you could find a more appropriate forum to post it in, say like General Health and Nutrition for this one, rather than Sex Basics? [Smile] )

You say that only one side of your septum is swollen? That sounds a bit like a deviated septum, but that's something you're born with. Are you sure you haven't had it your whole life? Maybe it has only become noticeable now.

But I agree with Leabug: you really ought to see a doctor/
