What is Seborrheic Keratosis?
Seborrheic keratosis is a skin growth that typically isn’t harmful but looks very similar to melanoma. This skin condition, which typically only causes cosmetic concern, can have a thick or “stuck on” appearance and can be brown, yellow, white, or black in color. We that most of our patients experience the development of their seborrheic keratosis on their chest, face, scalp, shoulders, back, or abdomen. While seborrheic keratosis may not be inherently harmful, Dr. Armstrong’s team of medical professionals still strongly suggest coming in for an examination to ensure your lesion is not skin cancer.
What Causes Seborrheic Keratosis?
Seborrheic keratosis occur in the same way most other skin conditions occur. Patients who are at a higher risk of developing seborrheic keratosis are more than 40 years old, have a family history of seborrheic keratosis, and have a history of excessive sun exposure. If you have already been diagnosed with seborrheic keratosis, but are starting to see changes in its color, border, size, or feel, we encourage you to come in for your private consultation at your earliest convenience.
