Dermatofibroma - photo

Went to the docs recently about these little bumps which are appearing on my legs at an alarming rate. Apparently they are dermatofibromas and cause no health concern. I could probably put up with a few but it seems I'm getting a new one every few weeks and am concerned my legs are going to be covered in them!

Anyone else had these? Anyone had them removed? If so how successful was the removal and how much did it cost?

Hi. I've had two removed. The GP did mine so there wasn't a cost. I only had a couple of stitches but do have some scarring. I think they're quite common in the legs

The GP didn't offer to have mine removed. When did you have yours removed and was that in the UK PJ67 ?
