As you age, your skin is susceptible to more abnormalities and skin conditions. While it is not entirely clear why they appear, seborrheic keratosis is a type of unsightly lesion that can appear on the surface of the skin.
What is Keratosis?
One of the most common skin conditions in adults, seborrheic keratosis is a type of noncancerous growth that appears on the skin. While these lesions are harmless, they can be troubling. Seborrheic keratosis lesions are characterized by:
- A round or oval shape
- Variations in color from black to tan to brown
- Can either be flat or raised with a scaly appearance
- Thick, wart-like appearance
- Size can be very small to more than one inch in diameter
