Wow! When you had it removed, did the doctor make any comment on it? I do have smoething in my nose, but it is where the cartiledge is, right as you stick your finger in, at the center, of the bottom of the nose. It's as hard as a rock. Doesn't bother me, but I do have a host of other health problems and I've wondered if it could be related. I also had one show up in an X-Ray of my neck and the doctor didn't know what it was.
