Seborrheic Keratosis

 A seborrheic keratosis is benign growth that can occur any where on the body, but is most commonly found on the back, chest, shoulders, and face. The often occur in multiple lesions. They present as raised, waxy, and almost warty in appearance. These lesions are rarely painful, but can often be itchy or irritating. A seborrheic keratosis is noncancerous and therefore doesn’t have to be removed, but if they are bothersome they may be removed electively.
