This is Dr. David
in some cases, flat scabs which come back on the nose can be early skin cancer such as basal cell carcinoma.
a skin biopsy can show for sure if you have basal cell cancer there or not.
have you had lots of prior sun exposure or prior sun burns on your skin? these can be risk factors which increase your risk for skin cancer.
I would get a biopsy by a dermatologist now to know for sure what is going on on your skin.
you don't want an early basal cell skin cancer to continue to slowly growing bigger and bigger.
let me know if you have questions.
it could be actinic keratosis
or possibly an early skin cancer.
only a biopsy can tell for sure.
let me know if you have other questions.
