Nose Bleed

Prominent vessels on the little's area of nose

Epistaxis or nose bleeds may be due to local causes (i.e. causes that arises within the nose) or systemic causes (e.g blood thinners, uncontrolled high blood pressure, liver disease etc.) The most common cause is bleeding from the front of the nose a.k.a. the little’s area. The most dread diagnosis is nose cancer.


Nose bleed can be minor or life threatening. It’s important to determine and address the underlying cause. Most local causes may be determined via a nose scope (nasoendoscope) and stopped in the clinic.
