The Process of Seborrheic Keratosis Removal
Most people decide to get rid of seborrheic keratosis and other skin growths that are either concerned for the appearance or irritated by rubbing on clothing.

- Dr SDavid will advise if the lesion needs to be examined by a Skin Cancer Doctor or if he can proceed immediately with removal.
