Moles and Skin Lesions

Skin lesions, such as moles, appear as discolored or misshapen lumps on the skin. Patients may want lesions removed for cosmetic lesions, or a dermatologist may recommend an irregular mole be tested for signs of melanoma, a form of skin cancer.

Early detection of melanoma is crucial to effective treatment. Various methods are used to examine and diagnose the lesion to decide whether or not it requires removal.
