Question

Lip

Hi Doc

My sister has this little growth/hard piece of skin that has come out on her lip and every time she picks it off it grows back again and now she is worried that it is some form of cancer. What do you suggest? It is very small, but she is worried cos it keeps coming back.

Thanks

Dear BB
It is probably a type of solar keratosis and she could have it removed by a dermatologist ( they normally freeze it)
