Atypical mole

Benign skin growth

Benign skin growths are very common and virtually everyone has some form of them. "Benign" means the growth is not cancerous and not harmful. Some of these growths have genetic origins, and for some the cause is not clear.

Common types are:

  • Birthmarks – may appear as flat "stains" in the skin or as raised clusters formed of tiny blood vessels.
  • Moles – small irregularities that originate in the pigment-producing cells in the skin. They can be almost any shape or color but are normally no larger than one-quarter of an inch across.
  • Skin tags – little irregular flaps of skin, like a flattened mole attached on only one side.
  • Keloids – a dark, fibrous form of scar tissue that forms after a skin wound, either from trauma or from surgery.

As a person ages, more changes may appear in the skin. Most are benign, but any unusual or suspicious skin growth should be checked by a medical provider. The growth can be removed if it is unsightly, interferes with clothing, or proves to be malignant (cancerous.)

Rarity: Common

Top Symptoms: constant skin changes, itchy rash, rash with well-defined border, abdominal skin changes, neck skin changes

Symptoms that always occur with benign skin growth: constant skin changes

Symptoms that never occur with benign skin growth: cherry red lower leg bump

Urgency: Wait and watch
