Skin Lesions and Skin Cancers Benign Skin Lesions:

Moles, Cysts and Other Growths:

Skin lesions are very common. Virtually every one of us will have had or will develop at least one skin lesion during the course of our lives and most of us will develop more than one. Fortunately the vast majority are and will remain entirely benign.

Causes:

Our skin is subjected to considerable wear and tear from an early age. Sun exposure is a major skin irritant. However it takes years for such irritants to manifest in the form of a skin lesion. Therefore the resulting skin lesions tend to occur in adults and in middle age / elderly. The cause of skin lesions, particularly moles, in children and young adults is not clear. Longstanding sun exposure is probably not a factor in this age group.
