The lesion has been bisected to show a circumscribed not encapsulated light-yellow coloured mass
expanding the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The skin over the lesion is lightly pigmented. The
dark marks at the margins of the skin delineate the limits of excision to the surgeon. These are a
common benign skin lesion usually occurring on the limbs and often described by the doctor who
excises the lesion as cystic.
