Skin Lesions & Cysts

Skin lesions are areas of skin that are growing abnormally or look different to the normal skin surrounding it. While in most cases they are benign or non-cancerous, sometimes they can also be a health concern for containing cancerous cells.
There are many different types of benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions like moles, cysts, skin tags, lipomas, keloids, keratosis, warts etc. The treatment depends on their type, size, and physical location on the body.
Your doctor will recommend removing skin lesion if there is any suspicion that it could be cancerous or could become cancerous. You may also decide to remove skin lesion if you’re unhappy with how it looks.

Choose The Right Doctor

A successful result entirely depends upon the right choice of the doctor. While choosing the doctor you must make sure that the doctor fulfills the below parameters

  • Board-certification

  • Extensive experience

  • Positive reviews

  • Sharing real results

  • Understands your case and expectations

  • Good aesthetic eye

Your Journey with CosmeSurge


During your consultation, you will discuss your concerns with the dermatologist and get an opportunity to understand the cause of your problem and the possible treatment option. The dermatologist may also recommend further tests for examination. Based on the evaluation, the dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to your skin and lesion type.


Skin lesions can be cut out, frozen off, treated with special creams, or destroyed using heat, laser, or light therapy. What treatment you’re offered will depend on the type of skin lesion you have and where it is on your body. The different treatments used for removal of skin lesions are:

  • Laser Therapy: Your doctor may recommend using treatment with lasers if you have a wart, a dermatofibroma or an actinic keratosis patch on your lips.
  • Light Therapy: This is a technique in which a special light is used to activate a chemical applied to your lesion to destroy it. Your doctor may recommend light therapy if you have actinic keratosis.
  • Heat treatment (electrocautery): With this treatment, your doctor will apply a heated coil to the base of your lesion to remove it. Electrocautery can be used to remove skin tags and is often used in combination with other techniques to stop any bleeding.
  • Surgery: This is a type of skin biopsy, in which the whole skin lesion is cut out and removed. It's the standard way to remove a lesion where there is any possibility that it might be cancerous. You'll usually have a local anaesthesia before a skin biopsy, which will block any pain. Your doctor will then use a surgical blade to remove the whole lesion, plus a margin of ‘normal’ skin around the edge.
  • Home Care: Usually your doctor will prescribe some gel or cream to be used after the treatment for better results.

Post Treatment

You’ll usually be able to go home as soon as you feel ready. If you've had a surgical procedure, the recovery time will be more. For non-surgical treatments, the results will be visible within few days or weeks.


Your doctor will give you specific advice relating to the type of procedure you've had. But it might include asking you to:

  • Avoid stretching the affected area, particularly if you've had stitches
  • Keep the wound dry for 48 hours, or until any dressings have been removed, and then to clean it gently daily
  • Avoid picking any scabs that form (e.g. after cryosurgery or photodynamic therapy), or doing anything to accidentally dislodge them
