All fibrous growths on the skin’s surface, whether flat or raised, are caused by a skin irregularity often associated with the keratinisation process and are called fibromas. These fibrous imperfections become more common with age and are viewed by many people to be unsightly.
Many of the simple fibromas are different in colour and texture from normal skin. They may become shiny, glassy in appearance and lose colour, appearing as white raised patches, which can be felt as hard, movable lumps or papules in the skin’s surface layers. The skin may become hyper pigmented, assuming a dark red-brown or a dusky wine colour.
