What is the treatment for seborrheic keratoses optional; destruction or surgical removal no reimbursable under medicare guidelines so let patient know that
benign accumulation of nevus cells that develops during puberty and evolves over lifetime Acquired melanocytic Nevi (moles, nevocellular nevi)
A cell of pigmented cutaneous whose abscence of dendrites differentiates it from a melanocyte nevus cell
What type of acquired melanocytic nevi are there junctional, compound, intradermal,
what is the treatment for acquired melanocytic nevi optional; excision
accumulation of nevus cells in skin present from birth typed small, medium or large congenital nevi
what is the treatment for congenital nevi more necessary in larger lesions, serial excisions vs laser removal
what can occur with congenital nevi they can have hair growth that is large and out of place that can hide cancer development
what are large congenital nevi on the neck, head or posterior midline associated with generally associated with underlying malformations usually asymptomatic but can be associated with seizures, hydrocephalus, and neurological defects
how is the risk of developing melanoma associated with congenital nevus the risk of developing melanoma is proportional to the size of the congenital nevus also large nevi can hide the developing melanoma
benign increase of melanin in the basal layer of the epidermis present by age 3 after uv exposure Freckles (ephilides)
How do freckles relate to skin cancer they are a marker for susceptibility to skin cancer

Classified as simple; benign increase in melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis or Solar; increased melanin production lentigines Singular or Solar
What is the cause of lentigines UVA
What is the treatment for Lentigines optional; bleaching creams, chemical peel, laser removal
apart from the epidermis what other body part can be affected by generalized vitiligo mucus membranes
Apart from the face neck and scalp where does vitiligo often occur around body orifices such as lips, genitals, gingiva, areolas, and nipples
Another presentation of vitiligo where the hair may depigment as well vitiliginous macule
