Signs and Symptoms of Precancerous Lesions

In most cases, precancerous lesions are the result of excessive exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. They’re seen more commonly on individuals with fair skin and are often located on the face, the ears, and other upper areas of the body that are typically exposed to direct sunlight when you’re outside. While precancerous lesions aren’t a direct threat to your health on their own, they can develop into what are known as squamous cell carcinomas, which cause skin cancer, if left untreated.

Some common signs of precancerous lesions include:

  • Rough growths on the skin
  • Scaly patches
  • Darker pigmentation
  • Shading ranging from dark pink to brown
  • Crusting
  • Firmness and redness
  • Bleeding
  • Sores that won’t heal
