Remove skin growths to preserve your health and your appearance
You may love spending time in the sun, but you could be doing yourself harm. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the number one cause of skin cancer. And that skin cancer can manifest as moles, or unusual changes to patches of skin.
When those growths appear, whether benign or cancerous, removing them is usually the best option. And, when the growth is in a conspicuous place, like your face, neck or shoulders, having it removed by a board-certified plastic surgeon can give you a more pleasant result and reduce the chance you’ll be left with a scar.
