Evaluation & Removal of Suspicious Skin Lesions

Long term exposure to the sun can lead to skin damage and the appearance of lesions that may be benign, pre-cancerous or cancerous.

The use of sunscreen, head covering and limiting of time in direct sunlight can help reduce the risk of skin damage or skin cancer.

The appearance of new skin lesions or changes in old ones should prompt medical evaluation to determine the need for biopsy or removal.

Especially concerning are skin lesions that are larger than the diameter of a pencil eraser, that are multi-colored, that are irregularly shaped or are increasing in size.

All skin lesions removed at East Hampton Urgent Care are sent for examination by a pathologist.

We also consult with Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons and Dermatopathologists when needed.

If you would like to come in for an evaluation of skin lesions, please call us at (631) 329-5900 to find out when a physician who can perform this service will be available.
