Brief Answer:
Need to get the lesion checked

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for the pictures.
You seem to have developed either a lesion of actinic keratosis or it could be a granulomatous lesion .
In my advice ,in such long standing lesions ,removal of the lesion followed by skin biopsy is very essential to find the exact cause .
So I would suggest you to see a nearby dermatologist soon for confirmation of the diagnosis and further management.
