I have a hard attached lump which oozes both clear and thick white pus and will scab over but then starts irritating again. Is it skin cancer?

In brief: Possibly

That could describe both a benign infectious issue or a skin cancer.
Best to have it evaluated by a doc.

In brief: Probably not

It sounds like a cyst or an abscess.
It should be evaluated by a health care professional.
