Types of Skin Lesions
Skin tags are small flaps of excess skin that can occur anywhere on the body. They can be of various sizes and are generally harmless. Patients often request the removal of skin tags for aesthetic purposes. Skin tags can also become irritated from friction or rubbing.
Moles can be of various colors and can occur anywhere on the body. While many moles are completely harmless, moles that change in color, size or shape may require medical intervention. Moles of concern should be assessed under magnification (dermoscopy) by your physician. If removed, moles can be sent to the lab for pathology for added reassurance and diagnostic certainty.
Seborrheic keratoses are commonly occurring spots on the skin that can be flat or raised and can be of various colors, typically brown, black, or tan. These lesions look waxy or scaly in texture, and sometimes have a wart-like appearance. Many people develop more seborrheic keratoses lesions as they get older.
Sebaceous hyperplasia is the enlargement of skin glands caused by trapped sebum. These are usually small, flesh-colored bumps on the skin that are harmless. However, patient’s may find sebaceous hyperplasia lesions to be aesthetically bothersome and choose to have them removed.
