Benign Skin Lesion Removal Overview
Many patients deal with common benign growths like cysts, moles and keloids (raised areas of scar tissue) that are harmless, but are removable.
- Epidermal inclusion cysts are flesh-colored, firm bumps that are commonly found on the neck or back of adults.
- Moles are common benign growths, and are usually darker in color than surrounding skin. The development of these growths is attributed to age, race, genetic and environmental factors (such as sun exposure).
- Keloids are raised areas of scar tissue that may develop at the site of an injury. They can form on any part of the body and may become itchy or painful.
