What causes Seborrheic Keratosis?
Seborrheic Keratoses are harmless, common skin growths that first appear during adult life. As time goes by, more growths appear. Some persons have a very large number of them. Seborrheic Keratoses appear on both covered and uncovered parts of the body; they are not caused by sunlight. The tendency to develop Seborrheic Keratoses is inherited.
Seborrheic Keratoses are treated by Dr. Green for patients in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland regions. They are harmless and never become malignant. They begin as slightly raised, light brown spots. Gradually they thicken and take on a rough, warty 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. Persons who have had several Seborrheic Keratoses can usually recognize this type of benign growth. However, if you are concerned or unsure about any growth, please consult our physician.
