If you are just beginning this story, click here to start from the beginning and learn about my daughter’s health. So we left off where my daughter had gotten this small cut on her nose (in the cleft where the nose meets the cheek). In a matter of weeks it had turned hard and bulbous. We were thinking it might go away on its own but it just seemed to be getting bigger and bigger. We were giving it until the end of the year to hopefully go away, but it didn’t. So we scheduled an appointment with an otolaryngolist (ear, nose and throat doctor) who specialized in plastic surgery.
