Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic keratoses (SK’s) are common skin growths. These benign (non-cancerous) growths can occur almost anywhere on the skin. Some people get just one; other develop many. Having many sk’s is more common. Usually beginning as small, rough bumps, sk’s tend to eventually thicken and develop a warty surface. Most are brown, but these growths range in color from light tan to black. A sk can be flat or raised. Sk’s tend to have that stuck-on-the-skin appearance. The cause is unknown.

Treatment: Cryosurgery, electrosurgery and curettage are the most common options for removing sk’s. Please see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment of these growths.
