Any lump should be evaluated for signs of malignancy. Fast growing lesions are of significant concern. Skin lesions that are changing color, have irregular borders, or are getting larger should be evaluated. Discolored skin lesions that bleed or develop wounds are also of significant concern.
Skin lesions that cause concern can be biopsied. Abnormal bumps can be evaluated with diagnostic ultrasound or MRI.
