Here are some facts about seborrheic keratoses:

  • Seborrheic keratoses grow on the surface of the skin and are often loosely attached and can fall off, especially if traumatized.
     
  • If removed, or if falls off, it may regrow.
     
  • It's round or oval shaped.
     
  • The development of seborrheic keratoses is sometimes triggered by pregnancy.
     
  • They are most often brown but can have colors from light tan to black. The appearance of seborrheic keratoses can vary widely.
     
  • Seborrheic keratoses are most often on the chest or back but can be almost anywhere.
     
  • Usually found in persons over 30 years old.


Customer's  Comment: My girlfriend found this mole on my back and I just saw it for myself today by taking a picture of it. I am very worried about this and am going to get to the dermatologist as soon as is possible.
I looked on the Internet for similar images and did not see any.
If you could offer any opinion I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Customer's  Comment: This mole on my face (right cheek) developed over a few years, growing in size, but mostly in thickness. I am enclosing pictures from 2009, 2010, and 2013. Then, within one month, the mole almost completely fell off by itself, piece by piece. Now there is only a flat mole remaining.
