a cocaine abuser get cancer in their nose? Ms. Bailey
Answer: Dear Ms. Bailey,
Nasal cancer is not a known symptom
of cocaine consumption. On the other hand, long term use of cocaine,
when snorted, can produce severe damage in the nose.
Cocaine can make the blood vessels
in the lining of the nose shrink and widen, causing a loss of blood
suply to the septum (wall between the nostrils) and damaging it by
leaving a hole between the nose passages.
This damage can result in collapse
of the bridge of the nose. Once this damage has been done, it is irreversible.
