Benign skin lesions are non-cancerous skin growths that that may be pointed out by the patient or discovered during routine skin examinations. Accurately diagnosing a benign skin lesion and distinguishing it from a malignant condition requires consideration of the physical and histological characteristics of the lesion as well as the patient's attributes and overall condition. Biopsy or surgical excision is commonly performed when a potential malignancy cannot be ruled out. Treatment may be considered for cosmetic purposes.

Some of the most common benign skin lesions are covered in this card: hemangiomas, hypertrophic scars, keloid scars, warts, seborrheic keratosis, dermatofibromas, nevi, pyogenic granulomas, and lipomas.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are benign skin lesions differentiated from malignant lesions?
Initially, benign lesions must be differentiated from malignant lesions. This is best done by being familiar with characteristics of common malignant lesions. The clinician should try to categorize any skin lesion as one of the following: most likely benign, most likely malignant, or unclear. The last 2 categories should be biopsied. Once the benign nature of the lesions is assumed, the diagnosis must be made accurately in order to assess any future malignant potential. A critical caveat is that all benign lesions must be watched by the patient and examined by a clinician should any changes occur.
What are the physical characteristics of a benign skin lesion?
The physical characteristics of the lesion are always best represented with visual documentation. For textual documentation, specific terminology is used to describe the considerable number of possible physical characteristics of a skin lesion.
Which characteristics outside a lesion should be assessed in the evaluation of a benign skin lesion?
The characteristics outside of the lesion refer to the attributes and condition of the patient beyond the skin lesion itself. Patient age, ethnicity, associated symptoms, sun exposure to the area, and anatomic location of lesion all give clues to the diagnosis of the lesion .
Which benign skin lesions do you treat in Oral Surgery?
There are many benign skin lesions and at Addenbrooke's these might be assessed by the Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery or Dermatology. You might receive your treatment and care in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery if the lesion involves some of the mouth and facial structures or if you are receiving other treatment from this Department.
