Skin Lesions (moles, lumps, bumps, skin tags)

Skin Lesions

Skin lesions encompass a broad range of abnormalities that can appear on the skin, ranging from harmless moles and skin tags to more concerning lumps and bumps. While many skin lesions are benign and pose no health risks, others may require medical evaluation and treatment. Understanding the types of skin lesions and available treatment options is essential for maintaining healthy skin and addressing any concerns that arise.

Skin Lesions Introduction

Skin lesions are areas of abnormal tissue or growth on the skin that may appear in various forms, sizes, and colors.

Common types of skin lesions include moles, skin tags, cysts, warts, and lipomas. While some lesions are harmless and merely cosmetic in nature, others may indicate underlying health issues or pose risks of complications. Identifying and understanding different types of skin lesions can help individuals recognise potential abnormalities and seek appropriate medical care when needed.
