I have bulging on my nose. What can I do? - See a Dermatologist soon!
Thanks for your question.
I think it is important for you to go see a Dermatologist in your area to have that area examined and possibly biopsied.

You should see a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, soon.
This raised lesion, with what looks like, pearly borders and telangiectasia (little spidery vessels) could be a basal cell epithelioma. You should have a biopsy, if the consultation confirms my suspicion.

Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do and how technically to do it based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
