Non-melanoma skin cancers on the nose frequently present to dermatology for surgical excision. This anatomical area has an excellent vascular supply and, consequently, increased intra-operative bleeding (Fig. 1 (a)). Pinching the nasal tip to control bleeding is commonly used, however this can be uncomfortable for the patient because the nasal septum may not be anaesthetised (Fig. 1 (b)).
