    skin cancer on nose?

    I have a scab spot on my nose that when get scraped off by mistake, will bleed a little and then scab over again. This has been happening for a year or two. I have had squamous cell skin cancer on my forehead and my arm which has been taken care of with surgery. I am a little concerned this might also be that but I am hesitant to go in and have it looked at. What do you guys think?

    Get it looked at...if it is something sinister, better to get it treated while it is still small. Skin grafts on the nose are no fun, so try to avoid that outcome by dealing with it soonest. Cheers, Sera

    Thanks for answering Sera. I have been waiting a little because of the doctors are probably all busy with the virus problems right now. I will be having it checked for sure. Have a good day.

    Definitely get it looked at. Especially if you have a history of this...its not something to wait on as it can spread.
