Identifying and treating precancerous actinic keratosis Brooklyn, NY

You may know that early detection is the key to successful skin cancer treatment. In some cases, potentially harmful skin growths can be identified and treated before they even become cancerous. These growths, called actinic keratoses, are caused by UV damage to skin, and about one in ten will evolve into skin cancer. Fortunately, an actinic keratosis can easily be removed with various treatments available at Khrom Dermatology in Brooklyn, NY.

Identifying precancerous growths

Actinic keratosis, sometimes referred to as solar keratosis, is a small, slow growing skin lesion. When it first develops, it may not be visible at all, but noticeable to the touch as a slightly raised rough spot. The more actinic keratoses a person has, the greater the risk that they will become cancerous.

Because these lesions appear quite minor, many people assume they are harmless. It is important to know the warning signs and see a dermatologist promptly if you think you may have an actinic keratosis.

  • Dry, scaly, or rough lesion, usually less than an inch in diameter
  • The spot may be slightly raised or flat, occasionally with a hard surface
  • The color can range from red to pink or brown, and sometimes flesh-colored
  • The affected area usually burns or itches
  • Actinic keratosis is usually found on the face, hands, or other areas with frequent sun exposure

Treatment

Although actinic keratoses do not always become cancerous, there is no way of telling which ones will. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that these growths be removed as preventive treatment. Additionally, people with a history of actinic keratoses should take extra sun protection precautions and undergo frequent cancer screenings.

The best treatment depends on the number and size of actinic keratoses, where on the body they are located, and other factors. They may be removed by surgical excision, laser surgery, skin resurfacing, chemical peeling, or other procedures. After an examination, your provider will discuss what options are available to you and devise a personalized treatment plan.

If you have suspicious lesions or skin growths of any kind, please don’t take chances. Call us at 718-751-0674 and schedule an appointment right away.

Real Patients. Real Results.

It was my first time visit to Khrom Dermatology, coming here for the first time was like dealing with trusted family. Dr. Natallia Fiadorchanka in my opinion is the most professional and knowledgeable Dermatologist who is also loving and caring human being. Highly recommended!
