Benign Growth Removal

There are a number of different types of benign growths. Many of them have a genetic component and can be seen in generations of family members. Some of the most common growths affecting the skin include:

  • Hemangiomas –Growths of blood vessel cells that often appear as red or blue papules most commonly on the head, neck and upper body.
  • Lipomas – Growths of fat cells that are found in the subcutaneous fat most commonly on the neck, shoulders, back and arms.
  • Nevi (or Moles) –Collections of melanocytes (cells that make pigment) that range in color from pink, tan,brown or black.
  • Cysts- Sacs of keratin with an open pore to the epidermis
  • Skin tags- pedunculated skin colored papules usually in folds
  • Warts- viral-induced rough papules
