Melanoma and seborrheic keratoses are not related to each other at all, except that both involve the skin. You have asked repeated anxiety driven questions indicating you are obsessed with melanoma, apparently without reason. These biopsy details probably are consistent with keratosis. If you remain concerned, discuss with your dermatologist. No more questions about it on HealthTap, please.
