Skin lesions

Skin lesions are lumps found on or below the skin.

    The majority of such lesions are benign, meaning they are not life-threatening and are removed if they are causing pain, discomfort or simply for cosmetic reasons.

    Examples of such lesions include:

    • Epidermoid cysts (Sebaceous Cysts)
    • Lipoma/Lipomata (fatty lumps)
    • Papillomas (Skin tags)
    • Dermatofibromas
    • Moles

    During your consultation, Mr Ridha will assess your lesion, with a dermatoscope to confirm the diagnosis prior to explaining your treatment options. Such benign lesions are usually removed surgically under local anaesthetic as day case procedures.
