Dermatofibromas are harmless, very common firm bumps that occur in the skin. They range from flesh-colored to dark-brown, with a slightly lighter center than the outside edge. The cause of dermatofibromas is unknown, but some have suggested they may be a scar-like skin reaction to a bug bite or minor injury.

If a dermatofibroma occurs in a cosmetically sensitive area or is tender, irritated, or symptomatic, it can be surgically removed.
