How We Treat Benign Growths
Your dermatologist can diagnose benign growths during your skin exam. If removal is needed or desired, your dermatologist will develop a treatment plan based on your particular needs. Treatment can include removal by biopsy, cryotherapy, laser treatments, or chemical destruction. Most treatments can be performed during your visit and are included in the office visit fee. You’ll receive detailed care instructions to follow after your treatment for the best results.

A benign growth is a general term for a group of harmless cells that grow on the skin. Benign skin growths can have a variety of different appearances depending on their cause, and are more often a cosmetic concern than a medical concern. Though they do not typically become cancerous, they can become irritated. It’s important to have these growths examined by your dermatologist to ensure that they are normal, and to discuss options for treatment. Whether your benign growth is medically or cosmetically concerning, our dermatologists can make sure you get the expert care you need.
