Skin lesion removal. Image 2 of 2. Surgical tweezers being used to suture a surgical wound following the removal of a skin lesion called a lentigo. A lentigo is a flat area of increased skin pigmentation. It is generally benign and usually caused by exposure to sunlight. Excision is usually cosmetic, but may be to avoid it turning cancerous. For an image of the excision of the lentigo, see M551/324.
