Actinic Keratosis

What is Actinic Keratosis

Chronic exposure to the sun can cause actinic keratoses (AKs). They can appear as a small rough spot most commonly found on the top of the face, back of the neck, hands and lower arms and chest. Fair-skinned people who have had chronic sun-exposure for years are more prone to developing actinic keratosis. An actinic keratosis can develop into cancer and should be treated.

Actinic Keratoses can easily be treated when discovered early.
