Skin lesions are defined as a growth of the skin. A lesion may be benign, premalignant, or malignant, and the differentiation is very important. All lesions removed are sent to the pathology lab for final diagnosis. A benign lesion will not spread, and generally does not become malignant even if it is not removed. Moles can grow in size, and often increase in numbers as we age. Most skin lesion excisions are done in the office under a local anesthesia and are covered by health insurance.
