Brief Answer:
Get a Biopsy.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

This crater mark may or may not be related to nasal trauma.

But it is very important to get a biopsy of the crater to rule out malignancy.

Treatment depends on the biopsy report.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
