Seborrheic Keratosis

Seborrheic keratosis is the most common non-cancerous skin growth in older adults. It appears as a light tan, brown or black growth on face, chest or back areas. The growth will be slightly raised up off the skin and have a scaly or waxy texture. They are normally round or oval shaped.

Seborrheic keratosis does not develop into skin cancer, and most remain painless. You may want to have them removed for cosmetic reasons, or if they are uncomfortable or irritating when wearing certain clothes.

This condition is treated through Cryotherapy at the Cadogan Clinic. Cryotherapy is a medical non-surgical treatment involving the removal of skin lesions by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die.
