Same problem here....Went to dermatologist a couple of years ago and he "shaved" the bump off...very painful...He said that the bump would grow back and I would probably need to go to plastic surgeon to get it perm. removed....well, it did grow back and now have another appointment tomorrow with another Skin Clinic to see what they can do about it...Will post tomorrow and update.....

Well, back from Dr....two places on nose identified as Angiofibroma.....He was pretty sure that they were benign....said they were cosmetic and insurance wouldnt pay for removal...I told him to go ahead and take them off...Had two options for removal...laser or razor....he said that a more astetic look could be acheived with "shaving" the bump as opposed to the laser...said that the probability of the bumps returning were high....Was really suprised at how easy the removal was....Had it done a couple of years ago, and the Dr. that did it about killed me...This Dr was a real pro...barely felt the shots in the nose and cheek area....My wife watched him do it...she said that he got a razor, bent it to the shape of my nose and gently shaved it off..he sent the bumps off for pathology and I should know something in a week or two>..After the shots, I couldnt feel a thing...cost $160 out of pocket....should be healed in a week....will update later....

I have these f*ckers too. started when I was 12. now i'm 26. started with 1, now they're everywhere. they get bigger when i sweat, and stay pretty big in the summertime, but are noticeably smaller in the winter. I got 3 cauterized off by my derm about a month ago. one came back, 2 did not. so i'm going back tomorrow to get her to cauterize the rest off (fyi, it feels like a hot needle but lasts less than 1 second, so not a big deal)...hopefully none of 'em will come back. if they do, i'm gonna burn those bitches until my skin is too tired to produce more of those damn bumps. so ugly.

HERE'S THE SOLUTION!
If you have the angiofibromia (however the f*k it's spelled!) then here's how to get rid of the little bugger once and for all!
Materials:
- Lighter
- Copper wire from hanger or similar metalic rod/wire thingy. You could use the blunt end of a sewing machine needle, depending on the size of the bump.
- Mirror
Procedure:
1) Take lighter and heat metal wire.
2) Quickly and accurately place the heated end onto the bump, keeping it there until it doesn't sting like the dickens anymore.
3) Repeat step two one or two more times, depending on your needs. These buggers go deep, and I had to do this a couple of times over a period of about two weeks.
It's gone now. I am 25 now and had this thing since I was 15 or so. I wanted to finally get rid of it since my job requires more maintenance of my looks. I went to the dermatologist and she basically shrugged me off as if I were being too vain to care about the bump. In any case, you may have to do the procedure more than once to get rid of it since they go so deep. You might end up with a little crater where the bump was. I think the crater (which is not even noticeable except under bright white lights) is a lot better than the bump.
I hope somebody might be able to use this information to their benefit. If not, it workd for me anway!

I have the same thing and my dermatologist said to go to a cosmetic derm. and they can laser them and at least take the red away. The bump will still be there, but at least it won't be red. It does cost about $200.00 per laser, but worth it in my book! Good luck--

I have the same problem you all listed above. I really really want to get rid of them. I have two on my nose that drive me crazy. About 6 years ago I went to a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon. Both told me that they could be cut off, but it would leave a scar, so they said to not do it. I figure six years later there must be some laser treatment that can get rid of them. If anyone knows a procedure, please post it here.

i have that too, and im only a teen, but what u said about angiofibroma is wrong, because it is a simple (benign) tumour composed of blood vessels and connective tissue. just look it up. i really want to get rid of them too.

when I am being especially hard to get along with, my bump makes me feel like a witch - which makes me try to be nice - because then "they" will just chaulk it up as a skin imperfection....Unfortunately, I am a bit tempted to try Rob from St Louis' home-rememdy - but not sure if I trust him.....A big scar from a 3rd degree burn on the end of one's nose may be worse than a small flesh-colored bump.....Oh well....

i got them to and doctor siad it is sebaceous cyst, and co2 laser is used to kill it, now they do not come, but doctor said i might run the risk of scarring, so far 5 months passed, it doesnt fully recover so i cant tell whether there would be scar, but the thing goes away...hope it looks OK when it fully recovered

I just had 4 of these cut out by a plastic surgeon. He said that going to the derm and having them shaved down or zappe does not guarantee that they will go away forever. The scarring is supposed to be minimal. So far so good on that promise!

Hi Jane,

If you don't mind, how much did the procedure cost? Was it painful?

Thanks

I had a laser treatment done for $150 for a bump on my nose, a dead cyst thats been there for 3 years. The Derm said it will have a white bump on it,which some of it fell off when I washed it this morning already, and will take about a week to heel. The laser will shrink it but not take the whole thing away from what I understand. The laser did zap some other things on my face (small red streek on my nose) and I see the heeking stages already starting-will get back to you guys
