Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Sebaceous hyperplasia are benign, non-worrisome, enlarged oil gland growths. They present as pinkish orange or yellow papules, sometimes with a central dell, most commonly found on the central face of middle aged or older people. Sebaceous hyperplasia can also be found on the chest, areola, mouth, or groin region. It is thought that they may be more prevalent in immunosuppressed people. As they are harmless, no treatment is required. However, various options are available if removal is desired.
