The Guinness Book of World Records records the world's longest nose

Mehmet Ozurek, 71, who lives in Turkey, holds the world record for having the largest nose in the world. It has a nose about 3.5 inches long. He was named the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest nose 11 years ago, but his nose continues to grow with age.

Mehmet's nose is the largest of any human nose in the world. In 2010, Mehmet was officially named the longest-nosed survivor. Mehmet says his nose is getting longer. Mehmet is not the longest-nosed person in history. In the 18th century, a man named Thomas had a 19 cm long nose, but since he is no longer alive, Mehmet holds the record for having the longest nose.
