Benign Skin Growths

Many skin lesions are considered benign meaning that they are not cancerous and don’t pose any harm to your overall health. Usually there is no need to treat or remove these lesions unless they are symptomatic or cosmetically unacceptable. Most insurance will only cover removal of a benign skin growth if it is symptomatic (itchy, bleeding, tender, or painful). Benign skin lesions treated for cosmetic purposes must be paid out of pocket at the time of service. One of our providers would be happy to evaluate your skin growths and discuss with your treatment options. Often times a growth that you may think is benign may not be so. Seeking professional evaluation is always recommended if you have any doubts.
