Lumps, Bumps, and Patches

It happens to everyone. A lump or bump that wasn’t there previously. Most can be quickly identified during a skin examination, and most aren’t anything to worry about. But there are some growths that can be more difficult to identify and thus diagnose because they can grow separately or in combination with others, contributing to varying appearances.

It is possible that lumps, bumps and sores will go away on their own.

For many skin lumps, bumps or sores, we may simply suggest self-monitoring. Some skin imperfections do away on their own. If they don’t, we can further assess the situation in order to discuss treatment options and provide suggestions or recommendations. We base treatment on your particular issue as well as our clinical knowledge of how to best to relieve your symptoms. After all, patient outcomes often depend on a dermatology provider’s experience, judgment and skill.

If there is a concern regarding the nature of the growth, if it’s growing, or if the growth is causing problems like irritation, we may opt to remove it. We utilize the best method depending on the nature of your lump, bump, sore or growth, removing it with precision and care.

Skin growth removal is a specialized dermatologic procedure. While many seem simple, knowing who to see for proper evaluation and diagnosis is key to achieving better clinical outcomes. Medford Derm has the clinical dermatology providers and skill needed to help.
