Skin lesions are the various bumps, lumps, or skin findings that we tend to find pretty much anywhere on our bodies. Most of these are harmless and will never cause any health problems at all. Unfortunately, some of these skin lesions can be precursors to or already are skin cancers or they can cause pain or embarrassment.
If you have a spot that is bothering you because it has grown, changed shape or color, or become painful, the first thing you must do is have it examined by a board-certified dermatologist. If your dermatologist determines that your lesions should be removed or that your skin lesion is not a serious medical issue but you still want it removed, we can help.
Types of Skin Lesions
There are literally dozens and dozens of different types of skin lesions that can be easily removed in an in-office procedure using a local anesthetic. Oftentimes, this type of procedure does not require any sutures and the patient can return to work or school immediately. Small moles, skin tags, and seborrheic keratoses are the most common types of skin lesions that can be removed easily.
