What is Keratoacanthoma?

Keratoacanthoma is a common benign skin tumor that typically appears as a dome-shaped nodule on sun-exposed areas of the body, such as the face, arms, and legs. It is believed to arise from hair follicles and is characterized by a central crater filled with keratin, a protein produced by the skin cells.

While keratoacanthomas often resemble squamous cell carcinomas, they are generally less aggressive and have a tendency to resolve on their own over time.

Causes and Risk Factors

The exact cause of keratoacanthoma remains unknown. However, it is believed to be triggered by excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which damages the DNA within the skin cells and leads to the development of abnormal growths. Other potential factors that may contribute to the development of keratoacanthoma include:

Sun Exposure:

Prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun’s UV rays increases the risk of developing keratoacanthoma.


ndividuals with weakened immune systems, such as organ transplant recipients or those with certain autoimmune disorders, may have an increased susceptibility to keratoacanthoma.

Genetic Predisposition:

ertain genetic factors may play a role in the development of keratoacanthoma, although further research is needed to fully understand these associations.
