Skin Lesions

People often have an unsightly growth on the skin – a lump, bump, mole, or spot – commonly referred to as a “skin lesion”. Most skin lesions are harmless but some can be cancerous.Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and fortunately, it is also the most curable with early detection. The lesion usually starts as what appears to be a growth, mole, spot or irritation to the skin. Key indicators of a skin cancer include:

  • Asymmetry in appearance, i.e. one side is different.
  • Borders that are irregular (jagged or scalloped).
  • Color that changes or spreads.
  • Diameter that increases rapidly.

Removal of skin lesions usually improves appearance and a pathologist can determine if the growth is cancerous. I remove skin lesions by excision only.

A couple of website that might be helpful are: the American Academy of Family Physicians; and WebMD on skin changes.
