    So title says it all. Our little guy is a year old on the 8th of May, and in the last month has developed a pink bump inside his nostril. At first I didnt think it wasn't a bump, just a scab, but now today it looks a bit bigger, as if it is indeed a bump. I'll attach the best photo I could find, but it's hard to tell unless you zoom in quickly. He's acting normal. He does sneeze occasionally and snores, but he has always snores. Have a vet appointment a week from today just for a check up and to ease my mind, but any opinions in the mean time would be appropriate.

The causes of nasal polyps are unknown
