I have developed 2 bumps on my nose that are quite large and noticable, have been to more than a dozen doctors of various specialties, and no one can determine what it is or how to treat it. Neoplastic tumors, or disorders, or "granulosa cell tumors", can be the result of hormone replacement therapy if used for more than 5 years. I am thinking this could be what it is. I had been terribly overdosed on bioidentical hormones for several years before I figured out that what the doctor was giving me was not right. When the first bump appeared, I "knew" that this was because of the over dosage, particularly of estrogens in the body (and testosterone converting to estrogen). In fact, there has been a study done that is almost identical to my situation, with the exact same outcome of these 'growths' appearing. These have been tested, and they are not cancerous.

I want to remove these; however a plastic surgeon said 'not advisable' because the nose is such delicate skin, and he said I could come out looking worse than when I went in. Does anyone have experience with a 'lesion' such as this or with 'a "granulosa cell 'tumor' or a Neoplastic skin growth or know who I can discuss this with that would help me determine how I can best have these unsightly lesions removed? Thanks in advance for your comments!
