Why does my aunt keep getting nose bleeds?

For the past week now shes been getting them and she said she never has before and she gets really worried easily and im starting to get worried now too what could this be? She is 55 and had surgery on her leg almost 2 years ago cause she broke it. She is also going back and forth getting blood taking from the doctors. We dont really know what for because she is kind of slow and doesnt really listen to what the doctor tells her.

    A deficiency in iron or vitamin K can cause nosebleeds (google for more info). she might want to get her iron and vitamin K nutrient levels checked out by the doctor/nurse. they will take a blood test to see if she's low in either of them.
