Actinic Keratoses (AKs) are common precancerous growths on the skin. Treatment of these lesions is the most common reason people visit dermatologists. Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning beds cause damage to cells in the skin. If left untreated they can turn into Squamous Cell Carcinoma. They are most commonly found on areas that receive the most sun such as face, ears, neck, upper chest, back, arms, hands, and lower legs.
