Granular Cell Tumor is a neural tissue abnormality that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Approximately, 1/3 of all Granular Cell Tumors are in the skin and the rest are on the tongue or internal organs. Clinically, a Granular Cell Tumor appears as a red/brown nodule. Although, they can appear anywhere on the skin, most often they are found on the head and neck region. The majority of Granular Cell Tumors are benign but there is a malignant version. Treatment involves surgical excision of the tumor.
