Skin lesions (growths) appear in many shapes, sizes, colors and locations. The most common types of lesions are moles and keratoses. These lesions can be flat or raised. It is important to monitor changes in these growths such as change in size or color. If suspicious lesions are ignored these can sometimes develop into basal or squamous cell cancer.
These lesions are commonly removed in an office setting using a local injection and then sent to pathology. For larger or complex growths, the patient may be required to go a surgery center. In cases with suspicious or complex growths it is important to seek a qualified physician like a doctor that is board certified in plastic surgery.
The procedure is generally done on a out-patient basis and requires no “down time”.
