Skin Tags

A common skin growth that looks like a small piece of hanging skin, often describe as bits of skin- or flesh-colored tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk. They typically occur on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and under the breasts. They are harmless and do no become cancerous or malignant. Skin tags are usually inherited.

At MPC, we’ve performed hundreds of skin tags with excellent results. The treatment involves cauterizing the base of the skin tag to close the blood supply to the growth. This procedure is well suited to treating small or large skin tags because it accelerates healing with minimal pain and damage to the skin. The scab just drops off in about a week, and you can carry on your day normally after treatment. Skin tags are completely removed with one treatment.

Cherry Angiomas (Ruby Points, Red Dots)

These little red dots are made up of a cluster of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin and can range in color from bright red to purple. As they grow larger, they tend to expand in thickness, and may take on the raised and rounded shape of a dome and maybe located on any part of the body. Everyone seem to develop a few, but the number is genetically determines. They usually appear in early adulthood; but the onslaught in those genetically inclined tends to incera as one approaches their 40’s.

Cherry Angiomas are considered to be painless and harmless. Removal is easy by way of Cauterization.

Milia (Milk Spots)

Milia are commonly found on the skin of people of all ages. They are formed when keratin (a substance produced by the skin) becomes entrapped beneath the outer layer of the skin, forming a tiny cyst. An individual milium (the singular of milia) is formed at the base of a hair follicle or sweat gland.

Milia can be categorized as either primary or secondary. Primary milia are formed directly from entrapped keratin and are usually found on the faces of infants and adults. Secondary milia are also tiny cysts and look similar, but these develop after something clogs the ducts leading to the skin surface, such as after an injury, burn, or blistering of the skin.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

This is a very common nontoxic, harmless enlargement of the oil glands of the skin. These growths which are yellowish usually develop on the face. It rarely develops on the areola, mouth, vulva or chest. Variants such as a form that is giant, a liner or zosteriform arrangement, a form that is disperse as well as familial form are seldom reported. It is important to understand that this problem is not hazardous to the individual and will not threaten them seriously. It is just a benign hair oil- gland over growth.

Flat Hyperpigmentation (Age & Sun Spots)

Hyperpigmentation is very common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color then the surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.

Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun.

Seborrheic Keratosis

Flesh-colored, brown, or black growths that can appear anywhere on the skin. These are harmless growths and are common in middle-aged and older people. Seborrheic Keratosis are round or oval and vary in size. They appear to be stuck on the skin and often have waxy or scaly surface. They are commonly painless, and require no treatment. But often removed for cosmetic reasons.

Cholesterol Deposits

Tiny yellowish plaques that are slightly raised on the skin surface of the upper or lower eyelids. Xanthelasma is caused by tiny deposits of fat in the skin and is often associated with abnormal fat levels.

Warts

Warts are skin growths that are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). There are more than 60 kinds of HPV, some of which tend to cause warts on the skin. HPV stimulates quick growth of cells on the skin’s outer layer. In most cases, common warts appear on the fingers, near the fingernails, or on the hands.

Plantar warts: This type of wart usually appears as flesh-colored or light brown lumps that are flecked with small clotted blood vessels that appear as tiny black dots. Plantar warts appear on the soles of the feet.

Flat warts: This type of wart is more common in teens and children than in adults. Flat warts are smoother, flatter, and smaller than other warts and they generally occur on the face. Flat warts also can appear on the legs, especially among females.

The typical mole is a brown spot. But moles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes:

Moles can develop anywhere on your body, including your scalp, armpits, under your nails, and between your fingers and toes. Most people have 10 to 45 moles. Most of these develop by age 40. Moles may change in appearance over time — some may even disappear with age. Hormonal changes of adolescence and pregnancy may cause moles to become darker, larger and more numerous.

Color and texture

Moles can be brown, tan, black, red, blue or pink. They can be smooth, wrinkled, flat or raised. They may have hair growing from them.

Shape

They can vary in shape from oval to round.

Size

Moles are usually less than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters) in diameter — the size of a pencil eraser. Rarely, moles present at birth can be much bigger, covering wide areas of the face, torso or a limb.

Unusual moles that may indicate melanoma.

This ABCDE guide can help you determine if a mole or a spot may be melanoma:

– A is for asymmetrical shape. One half is unlike the other half.
– B is for border. Look for moles with irregular, notched or scalloped borders.
– C is for color. Look for growths that have changed color, have many colors or have uneven color.
– D is for diameter. Look for new growth in amole larger than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters).
– E is for evolving. Watch for moles that change in size, shape, color or height, especially if part or all of a mole turns black.

Cancerous (malignant) moles vary greatly in appearance. Some may show all of the features listed above. Others may have only one or two.

When to see a doctor

See your doctor if you have a mole that:

– Is painful
– Itches or burns
– Oozes or bleeds
– Shows any of the ABCDE characteristics listed above
– Grows back after having been removed before
– Is new and you’re over 30 years old

If you’re concerned about any mole, see your doctor or ask for a referral to a doctor who specializes in skin conditions (dermatologist).
