 Man Discovers A Growing Tooth In His Nose After Having Difficulties Breathing For Several Years

Surgeons discovered a half-inch-long tooth growing inside a man’s right nostril after he complained about having issues breathing for multiple years, per the New York Post

Doctors learned that the unidentified 38-year-old man had a deviated septum, which occurs

“when the partition between the nasal passages is pushed to the side — as well as bone-like growths in the nose,”

reports The Post. 

Sagar Khanna and Michael Turner, maxillofacial and oral surgeons conducted a procedure where they located a

“hard, non-tender, white mass,”

that poked up through the surface of the

“right nostril.”

Luckily, doctors were able to successfully remove the

“satellite incisor”

by performing

“invasive intra-nasal surgery.”

It’s uncertain how and when the patient’s condition arose. 

Reports added that the circumstance is very unique and affects between 0.1% to 1% of the population, according to a study done in 2019.
