Seborrheic Keratoses are common, benign skin growths that appear during adult life. The tendency to develop seborrheic keratoses is often inherited. These spots grow slowly, are not caused by sunlight and are not cancerous. Seborrheic Keratoses begin as slightly raised, light brown spots with gradual thickening and take on a rough, warty surface and slowly darken.
Seborrheic Keratoses are only cosmetic and do not require treatment.
