The Truth About Detecting Skin Cancer-MainPhoto


My mole was categorized as a “Seborrheic Keratosis, inflamed. Benign.”  Yay! I was relieved and had learned so much. Seborrheic keratoses are brown or black growths usually found on the chest and back, as well as on the head. They originate from cells called keratinocytes. As they develop, seborrheic keratoses take on a warty appearance. They don’t usually lead to skin cancer and don’t usually appear below the waist. Mine was below the waist, which is probably why my doctor ordered a biopsy. I am really glad she did.
