Dermatofibroma on a leg

Dermatofibromas are harmless, very common, firm bumps that occur in the skin.

They range from flesh-colored to dark-brown, with the center usually being slightly lighter than the outside edge. The cause of dermatofibromas is unknown, but some have suggested they may be a funny, scar-like skin reaction to a bug bite or minor injury that occurred long ago.

Often dermatofibromas will "dimple" down if they are squeezed from the side. This is a quick and easy clue to their diagnosis, and Dr. Crutchfield will probably perform this simple test when evaluating your dermatofibroma.

Dermatofibromas can occur at any age, and they occur more frequently in women than in men. Dermatofibromas are most commonly located on the legs and arms, but they can occur anywhere. Usually dermatofibromas appear alone, but sometimes there may be several.

Dermatofibromas rarely produce any symptoms and generally require no treatment. If they occur in a cosmetically sensitive area or if they are tender, irritated, or symptomatic, they can be treated by a minor surgical procedure. Dr. Crutchfield will carefully evaluate and recommend the best treatment option for you.
