Nasal polyps are sacs of swollen tissue that form in the lining of the nose. A nasal polyp can cause a feeling of the nose being obstructed, mouth breathing, runny nose and reduced sense of smell. Individuals who have asthma, cystic fibrosis, hay fever, chronic sinus infection or aspirin sensitivity have a greater chance of developing nasal polyps.
