Seborrheic Keratosis
Seborrheic keratosis is a common, hereditary, benign skin condition that usually appears on the back or face. Most patients report remembering that one of their parents or grandparents had many of the same "moles". Seborrheic keratoses are not malignant and, unlike actinic keratoses, are not pre-cancerous either. Keratoses commonly appear after age 40. They are wart-like growths, usually brown-black (although some appear waxy or yellowish), that look like they are stuck on the surface of the skin. They sometimes appear in large numbers and are usually painless, but may become irritated and itch. Because they are often dark-colored, some people become worried that they are a malignant melanoma. Treatment is usually not required unless the growths become irritated or are cosmetically displeasing. Removal is simple and doesn't normally cause scarring, although growths on the torso might leave lighter-colored skin. Keratoses can be removed surgically, frozen off with liquid nitrogen or burned or lasered off. Keratoses usually don't recur after they have been removed, but people who are prone to this condition might develop more.
