Benign Lesions

Benign Lesions

Benign lesions are non-cancerous skin lesions.

Because the definition of a lesion is so broad, the varieties of lesions are numerous. Lesions can occur anywhere in the body that consists of soft tissue, though most frequently found in the mouth, skin, and the brain, or anywhere where a tumor may occur. 

They are subsequently classified by their features. If a lesion is caused by a tumor it will be classified as malignant or benign. Lesions may be classified by the shape they form, as is the case with many ulcers, which can have a bullseye or "target" appearance. Their size may be specified as gross or histologic depending on whether they are visible to the unaided eye or require a microscope to see.
