Seborrheic Keratosis is a skin growth, usually tan or brown, that can appear anywhere on the skin. While these growths can resemble moles, warts, or skin cancer they are completely harmless.
Seborrheic Keratosis is not contagious although it is more likely to develop more once one has developed.
The most common areas of the body affected by seborrheic keratosis are the chest and back and the most common people to develop seborrheic keratosis are middle aged and elderly individuals.
Individuals bothered by these growths can have them removed through freezing, tissue scraping, and laser therapy procedures. While treatment is successful in removing the growth, individuals should note that a dark or discolored mark may be left behind on the skin.
