Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratoses are rough areas of skin found predominantly on sun- exposed parts of the body, particularly the backs of the hands and forearms, the face and ears, the scalp in balding men and the lower legs in women. They are usually harmless but there is a small risk of some actinic keratoses progressing to a form of skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma.
