Bump on skin of nose

I recently discovered that my 2 year old green cheek conure has a light pink bump on the middle of where his nostrils are. It doesn't seem to be bothering him, but I am unsure what it is.

(It was a bit hard to take good pictures of the bump on the skin of his nostrils since he was cleaning himself)

I think it would be most appropriate to take your pet to the vet at the soonest. These types of growths cannot be neglected simply like that. It is best you get the diagnosis done and do take the necessary medication.

This can be caused by many thing. The most likely is an in-grown feather. It could also be a small abscess, probably In a feather follicle. Cancer does occur in birds and has no connect with age. I am not suggesting that his is what your bird ha, but I am suggesting that you have it looked at by an avian veterinarian to get a definitive diagnosis and proper treatment.
