Seborrheic Keratoses are benign, non-cancerous, skin growths that may develop anywhere on the skin. They are typically brown or even black in color. They appear pasted or stuck on, are rough in texture, often being mistaken for warts. There may be a genetic predisposition to developing seborrheic keratoses, but they are more commonly associated with maturity. There is no cause for concern and no connection to skin cancer, unless a number of them erupt simultaneously. There are no treatments to prevent seborrheic keratoses from developing, but there are several ways to remove them. They maybe treated with cryosurgery (freezing), curettage (scraping) and/ or electrodessication(lightly burning).
