Seborrheic

Definition:
Seborrheic keratosis is a harmless, common skin growth that first appears during adult life. As time goes by, more growths appear. Seborrheic keratosis can appear on both covered and uncovered parts of the body. These growths are sometimes referred to as barnacles of aging.

Causes
The tendency to develop seborrheic keratoses is inherited.

Seborrheic keratoses are harmless and almost never become malignant.

Seborrheic keratoses begin as slightly raised, light brown spots. Gradually they thicken and take on a rough, wartlike surface. They slowly darken and may turn black. These color changes are harmless.

Seborrheic keratoses are superficial and look as if they were stuck on the skin.

Treatment
There is no need to treat seborrheic keratoses. The only reason to treat them is because they are ugly or getting caught on your clothing. The procedure is covered by insurance.

Seborrheic keratoses can be frozen with liquid nitrogen, shaved off or burned off with an electric needle. Your plastic surgeon will suggest the method that he thinks will best remove your lesion.
