Excisional Surgery of Benign Lesions


Neurofibromas

Neurofibromas are common benign lesions derived from cells that surround nerves. They can occur anywhere on the body and may be single or multiple. Multiple neurofibromas are often a sign of neurofibromatosis, an inherited disorder which affects the skin, bone and nervous system.

The lesions are single or multiple soft, flesh colored, tan or pink bumps which may be on a stalk. The lesions can be pushed down through the skin with pressure. This phenomenon is known as “button-holing”.

Most large neurofibromas require surgical removal. Surgical removal allows the patient to have minimal wound care and a better cosmetic outcome.
