Barnacles

Barnacles are a very common benign growth. See your dermatologist if you are concerned, because skin cancer can sometimes look similar to a seborrheic keratosis to an untrained eye.

 

Many people over the age of forty have a few of these growths. They can occur anywhere on the body but are very common on the face, scalp and back.

These growths often are slightly warty, raised with a “stuck on” appearance. The color of these growths can range from skin colored to very dark.

There are a variety of methods commonly used to remove these growths and it is best to discuss this with your dermatologist.
