Skin Lesions

At Advanced Surgical Associates in Shelbyville, Indiana, we specialize in the removal of skin lesions or abnormal growths in or on the skin, for medical and/or cosmetic reasons. Skin lesions can arise from something as minor as a small scrape or as serious as skin cancer, so it’s important to be seen quickly if you notice any immediate changes in the normal character of your skin. They can occur on any part of your body, covering a small or large area.

Causes of Skin Lesions

There are many common causes of skin lesions, from a simple bruise, scrape, or cut to teenage acne or freckles, moles, and discoloration from aging. A number of infectious diseases cause rashes, often followed by itchy hives. Skin changes can also occur with chronic conditions, such as diabetes or autoimmune disorders.

Skin cancer and precancerous changes in the skin are more serious causes of skin lesions. These lesions most commonly appear on areas of your body that have been exposed to sun, including your face, arms, and hands.

Skin lesions we surgically remove if necessary include:

  • Warts
  • Moles
  • Skin tags
  • Blisters
  • Skin cancers
  • Discolorations
  • Bumps
  • Hardening in or on your skin
