Benign Growths

The term benign growth, or benign skin lesion does not depict a specific skin condition, it categorizes a large group of noncancerous skin growths. It is important to monitor your skin for new growths or lesions, and make note of any changes. Benign growths can often be mistaken for skin cancers, and vice versa, so it’s important to stay on top of your regular full body skin exams.
