Should I be worried if my nose disorder is frequent nosebleeds?

Nosebleeds are not usually serious conditions that need medical attention. Anterior nosebleeds are come from the front of the nose, and posterior nosebleeds from the back. Posterior nosebleeds are typically more serious bleeds. If your nosebleeds do not resolve with a gentle pinch of the nose within about a half an hour, or your nose began bleeding after an injury, you should seek medical attention. If you experience frequent nosebleeds, you should consult a doctor to find out what is causing the problem.
