Difficult : Difficult to answer without a clinical examination, but given your age and that it is located on the nose, i would be concerned with the possibility of a skin cancer. It could be a wart, a nevus, a skin cancer, or other possibilities. Take a look at the link below to see a few example pictures of skin cancer and then i would recommend you see a dermatologist for further evaluation. I hope that helps!

Agree with Dr. S.: A likely possibility is a kerato-acanthoma, a low grade neoplasm of squamous cells. It is imperative that you see a dermatologist. The lesion may need to be removed and tissue sent to a pathologist for diagnosis. Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, Wish you good health!
