Dermatofibroma Definition


A dermatofibroma is extremely common. It is a small, firm bump on the skin. The bump is an overgrowth of the tissue lying between the outer and inner layers of skin. The bump is generally pinkish-brown in color and is often found on the legs. The dermatofibroma usually occurs alone and has no symptoms at all. Sometimes more than one appears. Generally, they are harmless and have no connection to skin cancer.
