How fast will my nose piercing close up?

I have had my nose pierced for almost 6 years. I keep getting those annoying bumps beside the piercing and they come and go. A few days ago I had a really big one develop and I got scared and took the piercing out. It has been out for almost 1 full day now. How long do I have until the piercing totally closes up and will this bump EVER go away or is it now scar tissue? Thanks!
I have never taken the piercing out. This is the first time I have done this.

  1. depends on the guage of the piercing on average about 7-10 days and it will close but it could be faster
