Seborrheic Keratosis

Seborrheic keratoses are incredibly common growths.  They typically look like rough brown patches or bumps.  They often lead to a visit to the dermatologist due to their appearance for reasons of unsightliness, concerns about cancer, itching or bleeding.  Fortunately, these are benign growths that seem to occur for no reason. They are more common in middle age and seniors.   Although most common on the trunk, they can occur on the face, scalp, arms and legs. Seborrheic Keratosis can be removed with various methods such as liquid nitrogen cryotherapy or with an electric needle, but there is no cream that works or preventive therapy at this time.
