SKIN CONCERN:

Syringoma

Syringoma is a cluster of small benign tumours that are mostly found on the upper cheeks.

What is Syringoma?

Syringomas usually appear as small bumps that grow between 1 and 3 millimetres. They are either white, yellow or flesh-coloured. They typically occur in symmetrical clusters on both sides of your face or body. There are also cases where eruptive syringomas appear on more sensitive areas such as the chest, abdomen and genitalia although this is much rarer.

What causes Syringoma?

The reason for the development of syringoma is when the cells in the sweat glands are overactive, producing bumps over the body. Despite being a condition that can develop at any age, they are more likely to form during young adulthood. There are various external causes that can trigger the development of syringomas, for example, genetics, diabetes, Down syndrome, Marfan’s syndrome, and Ehlers-Hanlos syndrome.

DID YOU KNOW?

Syringoma can often be mistaken for other conditions such as milia, acne vulgaris, flat warts as well as basal cell skin cancer.

If you are unsure with any lesions on your skin, please speak to our laser specialists and medical doctor at Cosmetic Medical Clinic.
