What are Actinic Keratoses?

Actinic keratosis is the most common precancer that forms on the skin. It forms when the skin is badly damaged by ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or indoor tanning beds. This condition comes in the form of small, rough bumps on sun-exposed areas of the skin. The skin growths range in appearance from a thin, persistent scaly spot to a red, thick, crusted lesion. If left untreated, actinic keratosis can eventually turn into skin cancer.

How to Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis can be identified and treated before it develops into skin cancer. It’s important to see a board-certified dermatologist for skin screening exams. Dr. Kingsley and her team care for patients with actinic keratosis with treatments like liquid nitrogen therapy and photodynamic therapy. Topical creams may also be prescribed to treat the condition at home.
