As we grow and age, our bodies form a number of different types of skin lesions.  Assessment by our dermatologist can help diagnose them and provide you with reassurance that they are okay.  In some circumstances, you may choose to have the lesion removed for personal comfort, preference, or cosmetic enhancement.  The choice is yours.


Moles are a very common type of skin growth that appear as small, dark spots. While they are usually harmless, it is important to have them checked if one notices a change in their appearance or characteristics.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are common skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body but are usually found on the neck, upper chest, eyelids, or underarms. While they are not harmful to your health, they may become irritated.

Skin Cysts

A cyst is a sac-like pocket of tissue that contains fluid or other substances. They can grow almost anywhere on the body or under the skin and may cause discomfort for some.


Milia are small, white bumps that commonly occur on the skin. They can develop at any age, particularly on the face and around the delicate eye area skin.


Keloids are a type of raised scar that occur after an injury has healed. They are caused by an excess of collagen in the skin during the healing process. While they are not harmful, they may be uncomfortable or painful.
