    Hi - I'm looking for a diagnosis for this disease. I know it's a neoplasm but that's as far as I get on my own. Is there anyone who might be able to lend a hand or a code?

    I tried to google it... it's definitely a neoplasm of the skin... I just can't figure out for sure if it's malignant or benign... I think benign, but can you ask your doctor?


    Please let me know what you find out because now I'm curious!

    Here is the definition I found per Dorlands Medical Dictionary

    "Slightly raised keratotic lesion sometimes described as the intraepidermal counterpart of an eccrine poroma"

    "Eccrine Poroma is a benign tumor arising from the intraepidermal portion of the eccrine sweat duct, often on the palm or sole."

    Both are quotes from the Dorlands Dictionary.

    Good Luck!
