What is Keratoma?

Description of the disease

Keratoma is a benign tumor that develops from skin cells. It usually appears on sun-exposed areas of the skin, such as the face, neck, hands, and chest.


  • Seborrheic keratoma
  • Solar keratosis
  • Seborrheic keratoma (scaly)


Symptoms of keratoma may include the appearance of thickened, textured patches on the skin, sometimes with a brown or black tint. They may feel rough to the touch and often do not cause pain.


The main cause of keratoma development is prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays on the skin, especially in people with sensitive skin or light hair and eye color.


The diagnosis of keratoma is made based on a visual examination of the skin and, in some cases, a biopsy of the tumor to check for malignancy.


In most cases, keratoma does not need to be treated, but if it causes discomfort or inconvenience, it can be removed through surgical intervention or laser therapy.


To prevent keratoma, it is necessary to avoid prolonged sun exposure, use sunscreen, and regularly check the skin for new growths.


A dermatologist or oncologist is involved in the diagnosis and treatment of keratoma.
