Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common noncancerous skin growths mostly in adults. A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light tan growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back. The growth has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance. Seborrheic keratoses don’t become cancerous and aren’t thought to be related to sun exposure, but they can look like skin cancer.
It’s Symptoms A seborrheic keratosis:
• Varies in color, usually from light tan to brown or black
• Is round or oval-shaped
• Has a characteristic “pasted on” look
• Is flat or slightly elevated with a scaly surface
• Ranges in size from very small to more than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) across
• May itch
Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment. You may decide to have them removed if they become irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons. Be careful not to rub, scratch or pick at them. This can lead to bleeding, swelling and, in rare cases, infection.
A male patient came to Chandan Hospital with multiple black sores over the entire face. The patient initially had local discomfort, occasional pain, and irritation over the affected sites. He had also sought medical consultation previously but it failed to cure him. At Chandan, he was followed-up by Dr. Amrita Srivastava and sent for clinical examinations. Clinical Examinations revealed the verrucous growth of benign tumor predominantly over the entire face. After further investigations, Seborrheic Keratosis was confirmed. Based on the clinical findings, a diagnosis of Seborrheic Keratosis was done by using the most-advanced Carbon Dioxide Laser technology. After the diagnosis, the patient was successfully treated with good outcome and was instructed to keep good hygiene to prevent post-operative infections.
