Skin Lesion / Mole Removal / Skin Cysts
Skin is the largest organ in the body. Yes, it is actually an organ just like your liver, heart or your kidneys and just as important as any of them.
Skin lesions can vary from the simple and very benign to the complex and very life threatening.
Here is a very quick overview of the most common lesions I see in my practice and a quick overview of what you should be or shouldn’t be concerned about.
The bottom line? If in doubt call in and we can do a “spot check mole check”. It takes only a few minutes and can be a reassurance or even might just save your life! Finding out a lesion is cancerous early is a potential life saver.
BENIGN (NON-CANCEROUS ) LESIONS
Dermal naevus or common mole
These can be flat or raised in any age group.
Common in white skin that has had sun exposure and tends to be over 40–50-year age group. They can be mistaken for melanoma so it’s worth a check if you see one.
Please, please, please, do not squeeze these! I know it is popular on the internet to watch these things being squeezed, but it only leads to complications and scarring and potential infection!
(BCC or Rodent ulcer)
These tend to be in sun exposed areas and invariably present in people who have used sunbeds and sun tanned. They do not spread to the rest of your body but can be very destructive and present usually on the face – you really don’t want part of your face removed so please – sunblock!
Look for a pearly border with a ulcer in the middle although they can present in other ways as a scaly area or a smooth plaque
Squamous cell cancer
Squamous cell cancer is more serious and can spread to the rest of the body. It looks more aggressive
Melanoma is what I describe as a pigmented lesions that is irregularly outlined, irregularly coloured and irregularly surfaced usually greater than 6mm (1/4 inch) but not always. Basically any dark lesion that you are concerned about get checked out.
Melanoma is a killer
