Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic Keratoses

Seborrheic Keratoses (SK’s) are benign skin growths that can occur anywhere on the skin. Usually beginning as small, rough bumps, SK’s tend to eventually thicken and develop a warty surface. Most are brown, but these growths can range in color from light tan to black. Some SK’s can become as large as a half-dollar. What often distinguishes these growths from other lesions is a waxy, stuck-on appearance, similar to a drop of brown candle wax. Cryosurgery is a common treatment option for SK’s.
