When you see something unfamiliar on your skin, it can be a very concerning phenomenon. Some we are able to shrug off, such as moles that we have had for years, but often other skin lesions develop that are much more cause for concern and make us worry about our health. If you suffer from one or multiple lesions on your skin, you don’t have to panic. There are treatments and removal options available at our office that can restore your skin to its normal appearance and give you peace of mind.
Types of Skin Lesions
Some of the harmless skin lesions that are completely treatable and removable include the following blemishes:
– Skin tags: a small and benign outgrowth from the skin that is found in areas where the skin rubs together or clothes create friction,
– Whiteheads (Milias): Small, white, enduring, pimple-like lesions that are typically found under the eyes or in other oily parts of the skin,
– Cherry angiomas: Tiny, bright-red, raised lesions on the skin that typically are found on the upper body or neck area.
– Hemangiomas: More of a swelling associated with the circulatory system than a skin lesion, but similar in appearance.
These may be unattractive, but they are not normally a cause for concern. If you have been diagnosed with these in the past or suspect that you may have them, you should consult our team in Orlando for an expert opinion.
Should I Be Worried?
As previously stated, most skin lesions are nothing to worry about and can easily be treated or removed if they detract from your appearance. However, there are some things you should keep in mind when deciding to seek medical attention for a skin condition that may have more severe repercussions. If your lesion is bleeding, has very irregular/asymmetrical edges, or you notice different pigmentation within the lesion, you should immediately seek out a professional opinion as this can be indicative of a more serious condition.
