Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic keratoses can grow almost anywhere on the skin, but they are most common on the head, face, neck, back and torso, and these growths do not appear on the palms or soles of the feet. They are commonly tan or brown, but the color of these growths can range from white to black. The growths start as small bumps, then become rough and waxy as they get larger. They can resemble a brown wart that is as small as a freckle, or they can be larger than a quarter.

Removing Seborrheic Keratosis

After a seborrheic keratoses has been diagnosed, you can determine whether or not you want the growths removed. These bumps are usually painless, but some can itch or be bothersome due to aesthetics. If you want seborrheic keratoses removed, our board-certified dermatologists can perform removal. Most seborrheic keratoses can be quickly removed by shaving it off the skin or removing by excision. Cryotherapy is another option for seborrheic keratoses removal.

Seborrheic keratoses is a common, non-cancerous skin growth for older adults, but they can resemble skin cancer and precancerous growths. For diagnosis and treatment options for skin growths, contact our office today.
