What Are Benign Skin Lesions?

Benign skin lesions are non-cancerous growths of skin that occur on the surface of the skin. These lesions are most commonly discovered by doctors or individuals during regular skin examinations. It is vital to differentiate a benign skin lesion from a malignant one to treat either form of lesion adequately. A medical professional can best determine the nature of a skin lesion through a clinical examination. 

The Most Common Benign Skin Lesions

Warts & Verrucas: Warts and Verrucas are small non-cancerous lumps on the skin. The human papillomavirus causes warts and verrucas, which makes them more prone to spreading through skin-to-skin contact.

Skin Tags: Skin tags are common non-cancerous growths of skin that are small, soft, skin-coloured and painless to touch. 

Milia: Milia are small pearly white or yellow bumps on the skin. Generally, they are not painful or itchy; however, they can cause discomfort. 

Moles: Moles are usually non-cancerous growths of skin that can form anywhere on the skin. They can appear as early as childhood and are usually brown or black in colour. On rare occasions, moles can change and develop malignant features. If there are any concerns about a changing mole, urgent medical advise via your regular medical practitioner is advised. 

Cherry Angiomas: Cherry angiomas, also known as Campbell de Morgan spots are non-cancerous mole-like lesions that contain small blood vessels. 

Seborrhoeic keratosis: Seborrhoeic keratosis is a wart-like spot that appears on the skin as a common sign of ageing. They can be found anywhere on the skin except the palms and soles.
