Chicago Medical Dermatology Conditions Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic keratoses (SK's) are skin growths that occur in middle-aged and older adults. They look scary, but they are benign. Some people get one while others can have countless SK's. They can look warty or "stuck-on." Most are tan-brown in color, but they can start as flat white lesions. Because they can mimic other dangerous skin conditions, it is important to have your dermatologist evaluate these lesions.

Treatment
Oftentimes, reassurance is the best treatment. However, there are many therapies for seborrheic keratoses, especially those that have become irritated or unsightly. These therapies include: cryotherapy, shave excision, electrocautery, and curettage.
