SEBORRHOEIC KERATOSES - BASAL CELL PAPILLOMAS, SENILE WARTS, OR BROWN WARTS
What are Basal Cell Papillomas, Senile Warts or Brown Warts?
These are very common harmless skin lesions that appear during adult life and rarely or never become malignant (cancerous). Despite the name, they do not have a sebaceous origin. They begin as slightly raised, skin coloured or light brown spots. Gradually they thicken and take on a rough, warty surface. They darken slowly and may even turn black and there may be one or many of them.
