2. Raised lesions

Raised lesions in Kaposi Sarcoma are known as infiltrating lesions. These patches are quite large and have a raised surface in comparison to the flat, nodular, lesion. These lesions will appear brown and mole-like; however, they are growing downwards, underneath the skin, as opposed to on top of the skin. These too can be found inside the mouth and nose. It is important for the skin to be checked regularly especially if you have any suspicious looking moles forming, under the skin.
