28. Picture of Syringoma
Syringomas are benign growths that arise from cells related to those in sweat glands. Anyone can get a syringoma, but they are most common in young, adolescent women. The sites where they most commonly appear include the neck, around the eyes, abdomen, genital area, and armpits. Syringomas are small, round, solid growths (papules) that are approximately 1 to 3 millimeters in diameter. They may appear in clusters.
Syringomas do not need treatment unless they are unsightly or bothersome. Treatments that help remove the growths include dermabrasion, laser surgery, and electrosurgery. Even when removed, syringomas can recur.
