Question: A 56-year-old woman with blonde hair and blue eyes presents with an 8-month history of a non-healing lesion on her nose. The lesion bleeds on occasion. She is worried about it because it has not healed over the 8-month period (see image). She reports having significant sun exposure in her youth but has never had a skin cancer. On physical examination, there is a 10-mm pearly pink papule with overlying dilated blood vessels on her nose. What is the most likely diagnosis and how would you treat it?
