Seborrheic keratosis is a common benign skin growth that often appears as a waxy or wart-like lesion. While seborrheic keratosis does not pose a health risk, many individuals seek treatment for cosmetic reasons or if the growth becomes irritated or uncomfortable.
The treatment options for seborrheic keratosis include cryotherapy (freezing the growth with liquid nitrogen), electrocautery (burning the growth with an electric current), curettage (scraping off the growth), or laser therapy. The choice of treatment depends on the size, location, and characteristics of the lesion. It is important to consult with a dermatologist who can evaluate the growth and recommend the most suitable treatment approach.
If you have located a suspicious lesion on the skin, especially if it is unusual, new or recently changed, contact a dermatologist as soon as possible in order to diagnose the lesion and decide on further treatment.
