A benign skin growth is a mass of cells that sometimes appears on the skin. Often, they can present with discoloration and may vary in size. It's important to note that not all benign skin growths or pigmentation disorders require a form of treatment. However, our Board Certified Dermatologist can help treat your issue if the growths create discomfort or unhappiness. Examples are birthmarks, flat not elevated stains, hemangiomas, port-wine stains, dermatofibromas, dermoid cyst, freckles, keloids, keratoacanthomas, lipomas, moles (nevi), atypical moles (dysplastic nevi), seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, and numerous other skin lesions.
