What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Seborrheic keratoses do not cause pain or itching. They typically appear as light brown areas on the skin that appear to be "stuck on." Typically, the growth has a defined border that is raised compared to the surrounding skin. The surface can have an irregular appearance. Sometimes there are small white or black circles within the growth itself. These are known as "horn cysts." Some lesions can grow to a very large size and can appear very dark.
