Dear Stanley, the good news is that the papilloma that was surgically removed is benign. This means that it is not cancerous (malignant). Your Ear Nose & Throat Specialist (ENT) and your General Practitioner (GP) are correct when they informed you that it is 'normal' for slight oozing of blood from your nose to continue for some time. The problem is that during the night, the slight oozing of blood finds its way down your throat (when lying on your back), hence the bloodstained mucus. What is important is that you must not try to blow your nose; also do not bend forward and do not lift any heavy objects. Also try and sleep on your side or stomach and not on your back. If the slight bleeding continues, it is suggested that you make an appointment with your ENT so he/she can have a look to ensure that everything is still normal. (MCH).
