There is practically no man who does not wear some ‘features and stamps’ on the skin. Sometimes, it is our characteristic sign, a recognizable mark, a charming ornament. But, sometimes, those are growths – congenital or obtained – that we do not consider dear or attractive. They are often unpractical – in inconvenient places, or they frighten us by their looks and sudden changes.
Skin and subcutaneous tissue are subject, during one’s life, to occurrence of formations of different size and characteristics. Those are mostly moles, warts, fibroma, atheroma, hemangioma, condyloma, skin tumors – mostly those are benign changes or changes of low grade of malignancy (‘precancerosis’). Treatment depends on their characteristics. Some are removed due to esthetic reasons, especially if present on the face, while others represent such group of tumors that require surgical removal – regular and complete, in order to avoid their recurrence.
It is important for these procedures to be performed by a competent expert in an adequate way, due to frequent unwanted scars and hyperpigmentation.
