small hole in septum leading into sinus cavity

So i have been to 3 ear, nose an throat doctors about this issue an each time they brush off what i am saying or think im referring to hole that part of everyone's sinuses. its located on the bottom part of the septum with a small bump above it, i know its connected to the sinus cavity an i know its connected to the sinus cavity as if i press my finger to my right nostril an only breath through the right which has this hole i breath through it. My left sinus passage is collapsed an been like this as long as i can remember as i have memory issues that n.n;; do make remembering alot of details far back quite hard but do know its been around for more than 10 years. i have put a Q-tip in to feel around an clean it out from time to time. i can feel it rub around inside my sinus when i do so. It most of the time will have a stinging pain at the end of this hole inside the sinus cavity. the doctors dont want to believe what i say as guessing it has to do with my brain damage an last one i went to had what ever the name of the tool they use to look inside your nose an only checked quite briefly an woudln't check where i was saying the hole was.

It sounds like you are referring to a septal perforation? A hole in the septum cannot be connected to the sinus cavity but it can connect the left and right nasal passage.
