Q: How is Seborrheic Keratosis diagnosed?
A: Normally, your dermatologist will need just to examine your growths to know that you have Seborrheic Keratosis or something else. Sometimes, the dermatologists take a small sample of the growth to examine it under a microscope. Anyway, that is not necessary, but they do it when they want to be 100% sure about something.
Also, if your doctor suspects that you may have skin cancer or something else that may be dangerous for you he will take you a biopsy (a sample of your skin) and will analyze it in the laboratory. The biopsy will be done in his office, so will be done in the same day.
