Skin growths can be an unpleasant aesthetic problem, they appear most often on the neck, under the breasts, in the armpits, in the groin, under the hair, they can practically appear anywhere on the body. However, places with higher rates of sweating and friction are most at risk. If such a nasty outgrowth bothers you, we will tell you what it is, if it is a dangerous formation, but also how to remove it.
These growths are called fibromas, <br> harmless and benign skin formations that are painless, in the color of the surrounding skin, sometimes even inches. Fibromas usually do not need to be removed if they do not pose a major cosmetic problem.
Fibromas – Species and Cause
Fibromas usually appear as a spherical bearing that can be harder or rather soft. As already mentioned, they can arise anywhere on the body, in addition to the areas mentioned above, on the back and limbs, sometimes even in the oral cavity or directly on the lips. To put it simply: These are lumps that suddenly grow and usually remain unchanged in size and shape. They often contain only adipose tissue, then they are called lipofibromas, but they can also be small blood clots, in which case they are called angiofibromas. There may be other variants, such as subcutaneous fibromas, which can only be detected by ultrasound or CT scans. The cause of fibroma development is not fully understood, but their occurrence is likely to be largely genetically determined, but there is a greater risk of their occurrence where long-term tissue irritation occurs. They are also often produced at the site of scars, this type of fibroma is called keloid.
Professional Fibromatic Removal
Fibromas are harmless, and so there is no need to remove them. If the removal occurs, it is because they are aesthetically pleasing to the person concerned, too visible, or where they are irritated. The most common way to remove fibroma is through an electrocautery – a surgical device that allows tissue to be destroyed by high-frequency current and the resulting heat. The resulting electrical impulses help to eliminate pathological skin growths. The procedure lasts only a few seconds, and usually only a slight burning or tingling sensation is felt. Thereafter, a healing scab is formed which peeles itself off after a few days. The place is unnecessarily exposed to sunlight. Another option is to simply cut the fibroma, but there may be excessive and prolonged bleeding, pain, or infection.
Removal of fibromas after home and prevention of further development
There are various Grandmother councils and methods of home attempts to remove fibroma, for example, with apple cider vinegar. However, the results are uncertain, vinegar may irritate the surrounding skin or cause infection. Cutting home fibroma is equally risky, even with disinfection. Again, bleeding may be very unpleasant and may take longer. Therefore, these methods of fibroma removal are not recommended, it is always better to visit a doctor and a skin specialist – a dermatologist who will know how to remove fibroma quickly, reliably and without risk. If fibroma has been properly and safely removed, there is no risk of recurrence at the same site. However, new fibromas in the vicinity may appear over time. Unfortunately, there is no prevention of fibroma. Anyway, it is more than appropriate to go with any sudden or suspected skin formation for skin examination.
