Avatar f tn If there any product that will cure seborrheic keratosis? Although I have had several removed, I have too many to count, and hundreds more are appearing over my entire body. Also, is there any evidence that seborrheic keratosis turns into skin cancer?
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms, it is very difficult to confirm anything without examination but it can be seborrheic keratosis or a plain HPV wart. Seborrheic keratosis is caused by benign skin growth of keratinocytes. They can vary in color from light tan to black. Excision and cautery may be needed to remove them. Please discuss these options with a dermatologist and get a biopsy skin done to confirm the diagnosis before opting for any treatment. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Hello, Firstly it is important to confirm the cause of these black spots whether they are due to cysts, seborrheic keratosis, angiokeratoma, wart or some benign skin growth and then the treatment can be decided. Angiokeratoma of Fordyce is a small dark red to purple raised spot which can be found on the penis and testicles and is composed of surface blood vessels (dilated capillaries).
Avatar f tn Hello, The growth that you are having on the scalp can be due to seborrheic keratosis or a wart. Seborrheic keratosis is a benign tumor of the skin and is not malignant. Warts are caused by HPV infection. A biopsy of the skin can be done to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist.
