What are some characteristics of benign moles and lesions in New Orleans?By Dr. Mary Lupo
There are many types of benign moles and skin lesions. These bumps and lumps are examined by Dr. Mary Lupo and ruled out as troublesome concerns.
- Dermatosis papulosa nigra
- Epidermal inclusion cysts
- Pyogenic granuloma
- Sebaceous hyperplasia
- Seborrheic keratoses
When patients arrive at Dr. Mary Lupo’s practice for a skin cancer check, they start by discussing the skin concern that brought them into the dermatologist’s office. Dr. Mary Lupo examines the skin lesion or tag closely and may remove part of it for a biopsy. She will also do a thorough check of the patient’s entire body for any other moles or lesions that appear suspicious. Biopsies are sent to a laboratory for examination to determine if they are cancerous.
Our mission at the Lupo Center is to provide patients with innovative, effective and ethical care to make each person look and feel their personal best. To fulfill our goal, we provide state-of-the-art medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments to all patients.
