Seborrheic Keratosis

MOLES, SPOTS, AND GROWTHS

Seborrheic keratosis is a common, benign (not associated with cancer) skin lesion commonly found on the face, chest or back. It is often “greasy and stuck on” in its clinical appearance. However, it can become red, itchy and scaly, mimicking a skin cancer.

Treatment for seborrheic keratosis is usually cosmetic unless the lesion is irritated or bothersome. At times it warrants a biopsy, for example, if any suspicion of malignancy is present. Keratoses can be treated with liquid nitrogen or heat or removed surgically. They usually don’t recur after they have been removed, but people who are prone to this keratoses might develop more.

Dr. Kormeili will carefully evaluate your skin and make the appropriate treatment recommendation for you.
