Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most common signs and symptoms of skin cancer?

Common signs and symptoms of skin cancer include:

  • Changes in the appearance of moles or spots, such as asymmetry, irregular borders or variations in color
  • Moles or spots with a diameter larger than a pencil eraser
  • Evolving size, shape, or color of a mole or spot.
  • Persistent itching, tenderness, or bleeding in a mole or spot.

If you notice any of these signs, it is important to consult a healthcare provider like Dr. Weiss promptly for evaluation and possible further testing.

Are skin lesions symptoms of an underlying condition?

Yes, skin lesions can be symptoms of an underlying condition. Skin lesions are any abnormal growths or areas of skin that have changed in appearance or feel. They can be caused by various factors, such as infections, allergies, autoimmune disorders, or even cancer.

It is important to pay attention to any changes in your skin and consult a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment if needed. Dr. Weiss is experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide range of skin conditions and will work with you to determine the underlying cause of your skin lesion.

Is a skin lesion removal procedure usually painful?

Skin lesion removal procedures are typically performed under local anesthetic, so any discomfort during the procedure is usually minimal. However, you may experience some soreness or discomfort after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Dr. Weiss will provide thorough instructions for aftercare to help minimize any discomfort and promote proper healing. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions during your recovery process.
