Seborrheic Keratosis can appear anywhere on your body but usually appear on: scalp, face, neck, shoulders, back and hands. There is no conexion between the type of Seborrheic Keratosis and the part of the body where appear. Ok, now let’s see the symptoms and a few particularities.
– have a very waxy look;
– can have different sizes (between 0.2 mm and 3 cm);
– can appear on: face, neck, shoulders, scalp, back and hands.
– aren’t painful (the pain appear when the you scratch them);
– can appear just one growth (if is just one you need to see a doctor as soon a you can) or … many (usually, they appear more than 5);
– can have different colors (brown, tan, black or yellow);
– will give you the impression that are some “paste-on” growths;
If you have these symptoms is very probable that you may have Seborrheic Keratosis, but anyway you should see a doctor. As you probably know Seborrheic Keratosis are benign (non malign or no cancerous growths), with other words don’t represent a health problem for you just a cosmetic one, BUT the problem is that Seborrheic Keratosis can be easy confounded with some malign growths that look exactly like it. That is why I insist every time to see a doctor. He is the only one that can investigate your growths and can tell you for sure if are Seborrheic Keratosis or if are something else.
And now if you found out that you have Seborrheic Keratosis and you are thinking to remove them (I really recommend you to remove) I wrote some Seborrheic Keratosis removing options here. Have a look!
