Epidermal nevi

Epidermal nevi are abnormal, non cancerous (benign) skin lesions caused by excessive growth of cells in the epidermis. Epidermal moles are usually visible from the moment the patient is born or at an earlier age. People with epidermal nevi usually have more than one in different areas of the body.

Sebaceous nevi
