Is It Neccessary to Remove Trichoepithelioma?

Thank you for your question. It is not necessary to remove a trichoepithelioma. If you see a recurrence of the trichoepithelioma after a biopsy with continued changes of enlargement, there is a rare chance of carcinoma. Be sure to be under the supervision of a Board Certified Dermatologist for the best treatment options. I hope this helps.
