The following list describes the various types of benign (non-cancerous) lesions. There is not a medical reason to remove these lesions. However, if you wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons, we have multiple treatment options including cryotherapy, laser therapy & excision. Due to the cosmetic nature of these treatments, payment is NOT covered by medical insurance and is due at the same time & date of treatment.
