In brief: Brown spot on nose

Is color same thruout or mixed colors? R edges well defined or irregulat? How large is it? Is it elevated? Does it bleed? Does it have tiny blood vessels running thru it? May just be freckle or mole but should be checked to r/o serious skin lesions like melanoma.
Protect self from sun: sunscreen (spf > 30) applied 15 min before sun exposure; reapply as needed; broad-brimmed hat; long sleeves/pants.
