Angiofibromas

Angiofibromas, or most commonly, juvenile angiofibromas, are benign fibrovascular tumors (fibrous and blood vessel tissue origin) that occur almost always in teenage males. They often originate in the back and side walls of the nasal cavity near the hole in the skull base where nerves or blood vessels pass to the brain, and they grow in all directions. Patients may experience symptoms such as nasal obstruction and recurrent severe nosebleeds.
