Seborrheic keratoses are incredibly common growths.

Seborrheic keratoses, also known as basal cell papillomas or senile warts, are benign skin growths that often appear during middle age or later. They are one of the most common types of skin growth and can range in color from light tan to black. While seborrheic keratoses are not cancerous, they can be easily confused with skin cancer, so it is essential to have them evaluated by a doctor.

Seborrheic keratoses are usually found on the face, neck, chest, and back and can vary in size and shape from small and flat to large and raised. They may be slightly scaly, have a waxy appearance, and feel rough. The growths are often dark but also light and can have a smooth or irregular surface. They can be single or multiple and can be present for years without causing any symptoms.
