Hard lump on side of nose - possible klaxon??

Hi, had this lump on the side of nose now for a few years. I hate it.
I think it may be a pore with hardened pus surrounding it. Quite hard to the touch and the pore hole in the middle is deep (not that I've prodded with a sterile needle - not me 🤔).
How do you suggest I attack this second nose? Do I really need to take my nose to the doc??

What happens if you squeeze it??

Nothing. Sometimes you can get a tiny top of a whitehead. I want it gone 😠

That looks like sebaceous hyperplasia to me. I had a few lesions like that on my face and my dermatologist used hyfrecation to eradicate them.

I had had them for years prior to that.
