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.
