Benign Lesions

Skin growths are completely natural, and many types of lesions and skin tags can develop over time. However, some of these can be unsightly and embarrassing for patients, while others can form in areas where they rub and become uncomfortable. In situations such as these, patients in the Walnut Creek, CA area can ask about benign skin lesion removal with Dr. M. Christine Lee.

Benign Lesions, Walnut Creek

Treatment of benign lesions

At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute, we recommend that patients visit us if they have any concerns regarding growths, lesions, moles, or skin tags that develop on the body. We offer a thorough evaluation prior to offering treatment options to our patients. This is because some lesions, such as changing moles, can be indicative of a more serious issue such as skin cancer. During the initial evaluation, we will determine if a biopsy should be done on the growth prior to moving forward with removal.


Most lesions are removed by Dr. M. Christine Lee via excision. This is essentially cutting the lesion off. However, if the lesion is deep set or has “roots”, the excision may need to be deeper and has a higher chance of resulting in scarring. These common benign skin lesions should be removed if they are problematic or embarrassing for a patient.
