Pigmented and Other Skin Lesions

Once you follow regular dermatological evaluation and surveillance you may identify a high risk lesion. At risk lesions are identified by size > 5mm, irregular borders, change in colour –fried egg appearance, increase in size, non-healing skin lesion, bleeding or itchiness in sun exposed areas. Especially take note of darker lesions on the nails, hair, hand and soles of the feet and genital area. These are rare often forgotten areas for high risk pigmented lesions needing regular evaluation.

Lesions should be excised when they are small before the cause anatomical distortion and require a large and difficult reconstruction which oftentimes are rather unsightly.

Small skin lesions, skin tags, solar keratosis and sebaceous cysts are easily managed at the rooms either with surgical excision or liquid nitrogen.
