Benign Growths

Many people desire remove of benign skin growths to improve the appearance of their skin. It is always important to remember that any growth should always be evaluated by your dermatologist first, prior to any procedure. Once a growth has been diagnosed as benign (non-cancerous) by your dermatologist, removal for cosmetic purposes can be considered.

There are numerous types of common benign skin growths. A short list includes but is not limited to seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, moles (nevi), angiomas, and milia. For example, African Americans and Asians often develop numerous, small, brown growths on their cheek and eye area. These growths are known as dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN), and are easily removable. Middle-aged to elderly adults often have numerous crusty brown growths on their back, stomach area, and chest. These growths are known as seborrheic keratosis and are easily removable. People with oily skin may develop tiny white bumps called milia and small yellowish bumps called sebaceous hyperplasia, which are also easily removable.
