Common Skin Growths
Many common growths develop on people’s skin. While the causes are often poorly understood, it is known that some are associated with aging and others are inherited.
Benign (non-cancerous) lesions are not life-threatening, but people often have these lesions removed for cosmetic reasons. A lesion may be removed for medical reasons if cancer is suspected. When a lesion bleeds or causes pain, inflammation, or irritation, it also is typically removed.
