Small papule that is skin coloured on the side of nose grows back when scratched and bleeds. What could this be? Skin cancer?

In brief: Nose lesion

This could a skin tag, pyogenic granuloma, or possibly a basal cell cancer in a fair skinned individual.
It should be checked by a physician.

In brief: Yes but rare @17

I have seen bcc in a 5 year old but that is rare and he had a syndrome.
It isoprene likely an inflmatory lesion or benign growth but see a dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and possible biopsy or excision.
