Skin lesions

Skin lesions are lumps found on or below the skin.

Book a Consultation

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.
