Seborrheic keratoses are noncancerous (benign) skin growths that some people develop as they age. They often appear on the back or chest, but can occur on any part of the body. Seborrheic keratoses grow slowly, in groups or singly. Most people will develop at least one seborrheic keratosis during their lifetime. 1
The appearance of seborrheic keratoses can vary widely. They may be light tan to brown or black. The most common texture is rough, with a bumpy, grainy surface that crumbles easily. 2 However, they also may be smooth and waxy. They usually look like they've been stuck onto the skin. While some are tiny, others grow larger than 3 cm in diameter. 2

Default Seborrheic keratosis

I go for C. It's Seborrrheic Keratosis and no other. With proper diagnosis and proper management he will get by.

My dad has this condition and I bought him an excellent cream (SR LOTION) at srlotion.com. Now, it's almost gone. Thank God.
