Small red lesion on nose that won't go away, when scratched it bleeds but stays. Also dry flaking skin around nose. Is this skin cancer?

In brief: Possible

It is difficult to diagnose without doing a physical exam. But, it very well could be a skin cancer.
I would recommend going to your primary care physician or a dermatologist.
