Common Skin Growths

Common Skin Growths

Many common growths develop on the skin. While the cause is often poorly understood, it is known that some are associated with aging, and others are inherited. Benign lesions are not life threatening, but people often have these lesions removed for cosmetic reasons. Examples include:
• Dermatofibroma
• Prurigo Nodularis
• Keratoacanthoma
• Pyogenic Granuloma
• Epidermoid and Pilar Cysts (Sebaceous Cysts)
• Milia
• Sebaceous Gland Hyperplasia
• Digital Mucinous Pseudocyst
• Lipoma
• Xanthelasma
• Syringoma
• Trichoepithelioma
• Neurofibroma
• Hemangioma (Cherry Angioma)
• Seborrheic Keratoses and Verrucous Acanthoma
• Nevi (moles)
• For diagnosis and treatment for any of these lesions, please see your dermatologist.
