What is considered a benign lesion?

A benign lesion is a non-cancerous, abnormal skin growth. They are characterized by having different color, texture, size, or shape than the surrounding skin. 

A benign facial skin lesion typically grows slowly and does not spread to other areas of your body. Benign lesions are not dangerous in the same way as malignant growths, but they can cause serious problems if they interfere with the functioning of your facial muscles, mouth, nose, or eyes.

Examples of benign facial skin lesions include:

  • Moles and freckles
  • Warts
  • Blisters
  • Ulcers
  • Scars, such as acne scars
  • Sores
  • Seborrheic keratoses
  • Skin tags
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Lipomas
