Particularly as we age, it is not uncommon for small growths and lesions to gradually appear on our bodies and faces. Skin tags, warts, cysts, and other harmless lesions that appear can become aesthetically unappealing. While many skin growths are indeed benign, it’s important to have them examined by an experienced clinician who can diagnose the nature of the growth and ensure that it is benign. If it is worrisome or bothersome Dr. McGinness can recommend an effective and appropriate means of treatment. If you are concerned about a skin lesion or irregularity, we can help. Our team of board-certified physicians, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant are experts at diagnosing skin lesions. If a skin lesion is determined to be cancerous, we have several options for highly-effective treatments. Our highly-skilled providers do not offer “cookie-cutter”, one-size-fits-all treatment plans. Instead, we take the time to get to know you and your medical history and background in order to ensure that the treatment approach we develop for you will have the greatest possible chances of success.
Benign skin lesions are, by nature, not life-threatening. However, if a lesion would grow or change prompt evaluation should be sought to ensure the lesion is in fact benign. Early evaluation and treatment, if necessary, of developing, changing, or growing skin lesions is very important to ensure that they are not cancerous.
