Facial moles are small growths the same color as the skin and can be either flat or raised. A mole may remain unchanged throughout your lifetime, or it can change and become concerning for malignancy. New moles may also develop over time – particularly in areas of the skin that receive significant sun exposure.

Facial Lesions can be lumps, cracks, ulcers or abnormal discoloration of the skin that are not normally present. If they are benign (non-cancerous) they are considered harmless and may be cosmetically unappealing.
