Had dime-size seborrheic keratosis removed from back. It hurts a bit. Have lentil-size one in b/w breasts. Too sensitive of area for pain. Remove?

Had dime-size seborrheic keratosis removed from back. It hurts a bit. Have lentil-size one in b/w breasts. Too sensitive of area for pain. Remove?

Usually: Pain is NOT a common result of surgical removal of this BENIGN lesion. I would suggest that the lentil size lesion may be a cosmetic issue and I would take steps to remove without WORRY that it will be" super"painful
because of its location!!!

Hope this helps

Had some keratosis removed a wk ago. 1 on side of breast looks pinky/red - what should I use to keep from scarring? Will it be ok in time? How long?

Sounds normal: Assuming this was a benign keratosis (seborrheic keratosis), and it was treated with freezing (liquid nitrogen) or electrodessication (burning), it will take about 2-3 weeks to fully heal on the chest and can stay red for weeks. Pink is normal, but if redder, painful, or crusting or draining, call your doctor. You can use a scar gel or scar pads (silicone) and avoid sun to help minimize the scar. ...Read more

Radiology? Chest CT = 2mm nod. Have benign breast calcifications & seb keratosis on chest. Repeat scan tomorrow. Should I mention to rad? CRC prev.

Radiology? Chest CT = 2mm nod. Have benign breast calcifications & seb keratosis on chest. Repeat scan tomorrow. Should I mention to rad? CRC prev.

No need: CT of the chest, because of the way the images are obtained, does not confuse skin lesions with possible lung nodules as can happen with plain chest xray. If the Chest CT is being repeated due to worry about whether a 2mm nodule in the lungs might be a skin lesion then there is no need to repeat it. ...Read more
