Please see a doctor. This could be a very easily treated non spreading early skin cancer or it could be something else but it should be checked out.

Take care.

Basal cell carcinoma is one of the slow spreading and a non melanoma cancer of the face. It starts in the top layer of the skin called the epidermis. It grows slowly and is painless. A new skin growth that bleeds easily or does not heal well may suggest basal cell carcinoma. Don’t worry and get the biopsy done from a dermatologist. Hopefully if it is a basal cell carcinoma, it should not have spread much, but exact staging can only be done after biopsy.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
