This lesion is on the chest of a middle aged lady and has changed recently. There is a central Keratin plug with increased vascularity and white scar like lines. This could easily be an SCC however it is a benign Seborrheic Keratosis
This lesion is on the back of the same lady and has changed recently. There is a central Keratin plug with increased vascularity and white scar like lines. This could easily be an SCC however it is a benign Seborrheic Keratosis
This lesion (shown in two pictures) is 10 cm in diameter and has been present on a man's ankle for many years. It has been treated as Dermatitis. Biopsies confirm this to be a superficial Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
This lesion is a raised firm nodule with branched and serpentine blood vessels coursing over it an is likely to be a nodular BCC.
This next picture is how we dealt with the lesion above. We could have done a graft however the only place to harvest sufficient non hair bearing skin was behind the ear or above the clavicle. On the nose it would be quite obvious that the skin was different so a bilobe flap repair is a better option.
Next picture shows the edges for those having difficulty seeing the BCC
This lesion is on the scalp of a 44 yr old lady. There is a blue/gray clod with scattered chaotic pigment and some radial lines at 5 o'clock. This is a suspicious lesion and needed to be removed. The report came back as a Blue Nevus which fortunately is of no concern
Anyone who is enthused by looking at skin lesions is welcome on this blog. My aim is that we all learn from each other.
