Likely benign: As a general rule, lesions that are uniform in color, stable in size and uniform in shape are USUALLY benign. Skin cancers tend to be irregular in size, shape and color and may grow noticeably. However, if you are concerned about a lesion, especially on your face, see a dermatologist and consider biopsy/excision.
