You are obviously worried about the spot on your nose. What is more you are worried that you may skin cancer. My advice would be to see a dermatologist to make a clinical diagnosis and, if necessary, to take out a tiny piece of skin to send to a laboratory to finalize the diagnosis. Only then will your mind be set at ease I think.
