The bridge of my nose tender for years even wearing sunglasses irritates it. Played sports got hit a few times in the nose causing swelling and bleeding what would be causing it.? Thanks for looking

Hello @keith300, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm wondering if it may be a result of trauma to the nose when you were playing sports. The following article mentions a Septal nose perforation can sometimes cause pain in the bridge of the nose as well as some swelling and bleeding.

Have you ever discussed the symptoms with an ENT doctor or specialist?

It seems like it may be a possibility of nose damage of some sort due to trauma but only a doctor can say for sure and probably after some tests and exam.
