You do not have to be too concerned but you will have to consult an ENT surgeon for an examination and blood tests. A clotting profile will have to be done to exclude a bleeding tendancy, due to poor blood clotting ability. It is however, merely possible that you have a small artery in your nose causing the frequent bleeds that can be cauterised.
