Sooner or later, we will all develop a growth somewhere on our skin. Oftentimes, the discovery of a skin growth causes anxiety, and the first question that comes to mind is, “Could this be cancer?” Fortunately, most skin growths are benign or non-cancerous. At Dermatology and Laser Institute, we specialize in the evaluation and treatment of all growths on the skin, whether lumps, bumps, moles, cysts, or other. Oftentimes, we will recommend a biopsy or removal of the lesion to verify the diagnosis. A common question that we get asked is “Will it hurt?” Your comfort is our top priority. We use a variety of advanced techniques to make sure that our patients are comfortable and pain-free during skin procedures. Another question that many patients ask is “Will this leave a scar?” Our practitioners have advanced training in skin surgery and will do everything possible to make sure that any scar is as small as possible.
Remember- whether you live in Denver, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, Parker, or anywhere in Colorado- if you have a new or changing mole or growth, don’t hesitate. Get it checked by a dermatology specialist at Dermatology and Laser Institute of Colorado.
