It could be anything really, has she been tested for Psittacosis? The nares can swell with Psittacosis or Aspergillosis, but they could also swell with a cancerous growth, or due to poor air quality. It could also be due to Vitamin A deficiency.

Is she booked in with an Avian vet?

no you're doing the right thing having it checked out, hopefully its just something simple, but better safe than sorry. Good luck, let us know what the vet says.

If you post the area you live in one of the members may be able to help with a avian vet

Oh bless her, I don't think that's down to a bump or scaly face :flowers:

Here's a list of Avian vets in the UK

Yes please let us now how you go on  your deffo doing the right thing it really does need a vet asap .Has that bump come up in a short period of time? & please like another member has said give us the area where you live. Sometimes normal vets will refer birds with problems to an avian vet
