Our expert says:
Your sense of smell is situated high up in the nasal passage, as the nerve for smell (olfactory nerve) leaves the brain through the Cribiform Plate, and enters the nose high up in the roof of the nose. To sort out problems related to smell, you should have an ENT examination of the nasal passage, with an endoscope.
Your doctor may even order a CT scan to evaluate the anterior cranial fossa (the front part of the brain and upper part of the nose).
