Benign skin lesions are overgrowths of skin cells that can appear at any age. It is important to first have these spots examined to confirm that they are non-cancerous. Other benign spots on the skin should be monitored over time for changes, as some have a higher risk than others of changing into a cancerous growth. Some other benign lesions can become inflamed or bothersome and may need treatment.
Palm Beach Dermatology Group offers solutions for the following conditions:
- Warts: These small growths can spread through contact. Warts may have a rough texture and appear as small black dots on the surface of your skin.
- Hyperhidrosis: This condition comes with excessive sweating that may lead to decreased enjoyment of daily activities.
- Skin tags: While common and non-cancerous, the appearance of these small growths can sometimes present hygienic problems and can also become inflamed or irritated.
- Cysts: Irritation, injury, or damaged hair follicles often cause skin cysts. Cysts can lead to complications such as infection, rupture, swelling, and skin cancer.
