What causes the seborrheic keratosis, what are the symptoms and are they dangerous for my health? What does a seborrheic keratosis treatment involve?
Although never cancerous, the seborrheic keratosis can create a highly unaesthetic appearance and become bothersome due to various symptoms it may develop, such as itching. The seborrheic keratosis is a brown, black or pale skin growth with a waxy, scaly and slightly elevated appearance that usually manifests on the face, chest, shoulders or the back, but can also be present anywhere else on the body. Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no special treatment, but for various reasons, such as irritation, bleeding or itching, you may want to have them removed. These skin growths are usually round or oval shaped and may appear singly, although multiple growths are much more common. You will need to see a doctor if the previously mentioned symptoms appear and if the seborrheic keratosis becomes highly bothersome, or if you notice suspicious lesions that grow rapidly, bleed and donít heal, which can also be signs of skin cancer and which can be mistaken for seborrheic keratosis and thus ignored.
The private dermatologist at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic branch in London can determine the nature of your skin growth and remove the seborrheic keratosis. The seborrheic keratosis removal procedure will also differ according to your situation and the doctorís recommendation, but the final cosmetic results are always intended to be highly satisfying. You will find out everything you need to know about the seborrheic keratosis removal procedure during your private dermatologist consultation, when our specialist will also assess your medical history and current health condition so that possible future risks and complications are prevented. Following the treatment, the doctor will send the extracted growth to a pathological lab if he/she is suspicious about its malignant nature.
