Get smooth and healthy-looking skin with the Interior Dermatology Centre

Skin growths come in many shapes and sizes, which is why it is vital to have them evaluated to ensure they are not cancerous. Some of the more common types of benign growths seen at our office include the following:

  • Moles
  • Cysts
  • Warts
  • Seborrheic keratoses
  • Lentigines (a.k.a. age spots or liver spots)
  • Cherry angiomas

These lesions may pop up on the face, neck, chest, hands, and trunk for various reasons, including age, genetics, and sun exposure. Although harmless, if you find these skin growths uncomfortable or bothersome, our board-certified dermatologist can help you take control.
