Have blister on side of nose with no liquid in it. Basel Cell Carcinoma?

I think I have the number 42...Basel Cell carcinoma ...hopefully I am wrong. It looks like a blister that has just come up on the side of my nose . It is similar to skin blisters I got in Fiji from being in the sun and it feels almost wet although no liquid and kind of hot but not? Any thoughts. I only noticed it today. How quickly do these appear? I have not been in the sun for a few weeks.

Thanks for your query.

From your description, it seems very unlikely that you have developed basal cell carcinoma lesion.
These are extremely slow growing lesions and take years together to appear.
it is very unlikely for these lesions to suddenly appear and show u.s

On the other hand, it is possible that you have developed the blister due to an acute sun burn.

You can however see a dermatologist for confirmation of the diagnosis

Hope it helps
