Growths on my face – what are these?
I’m going to try to steer you in the right direction but I really want you to have these checked by your doctor sometime in the next month. Usually, but not always, skin cancers occur one at a time. However, I’ve seen many patients who come in for multiple growths that all look the same to them but they are NOT all the same to me (a dermatologist) they look different and one or two of them on biopsy turn out to be skin cancers. So please don’t assume, go get them checked.
There are many different growths that can occur on the face including moles of all different sizes, colors and shapes, sebaceous hyperplasia (enlarged oil glands), small growths called seborrheic keratoses (small brown and warty looking), as well as precancerous lesions and and skin cancers, just to name a few. You see the problem!!!
Happy holidays! Dr. I
