Dermal Nodules and Tumors


Granuloma Annulare

Granuloma annulare (GA) is a common condition of unknown cause which typically affects the children and young adults.


When the scar from a cut or wound grows and spreads beyond the size of the original wound, it is known as a keloid. Keloids may vary in size, shape, and location.

Mycosis Fungoides

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. It is a low-grade lymphoma which primarily affects the skin. Generally it has a slow course and often remains confined to the skin. Over time, in about 10% of the cases, it can progress to the lymph nodes and internal organs.

Pyogenic Granuloma

A pyogenic granuloma is a common skin growth in children. It is a small bright red, glistening bump that typically appears on the face, arms, or hands. It looks like a hemangioma.
