Picture of Sebaceous Hyperplasia
Sebaceous hyperplasia is a benign yellowish growth that ranges from 2 to 5 millimeters in diameter. The growths may be associated with spider veins (telangiectasias). Sebaceous hyperplasia arises from enlarged sebaceous glands. The lesions may resemble basal cell carcinomas. A biopsy can help differentiate the two skin conditions.
