Seborrheic keratoses are raised growths on the skin. Seborrheic means greasy and keratosis means thickening of the skin. They have a waxy, pasted-on or stuck-on look, often compared to brown candle wax that was dropped onto the skin. There may be just one, or clusters of dozens. They usually start off light tan in color and may darken to dark brown or nearly black. The surface may be smooth, or rough and crumbly; they range in size from tiny oval spots to long Christmas tree-like patterns on the torso that are inches long. They are often mistaken for warts, moles, skin tags, or skin cancer.
