“A lesion can appear anywhere on the body. Lesions can range in shape, size, and color and cover a small or large area of the body. Skin lesions can appear in a group or as a single spot and be localized to a sole area of the body or scattered in various areas.” -Steven Bengelsdorf, MD
A member of the American College of Surgeons, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and American Society for Laser Medicine, Dr. Bengelsdorf has the training, experience, and technologies to skillfully perform a range of mole removal and repair techniques without leaving an unsightly scar.
There are several types of lesions that are very common and benign (non-cancerous). These conditions include moles, freckles, skintags, benign lentigines, and seborrheic keratoses. If you experience noticeable changes in a mole’s color, texture, height, size, or shape, you should be evaluated by a dermatologist to ensure it is benign. You should also be evaluated by a dermatologist if the lesion bleeds, oozes, itches, or becomes tender and painful.
Skintags and moles are common skin issues that may seem minor but can really be bothersome to an individual. Unless they are cancerous, they pose no major threat to your health. For the most part, lesions are non-threatening.
