Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratosis is a pre-malignant disorder of the epidermis (ie. pre-cancerous). It usually presents as a small rough patch in areas exposed to the sun, especially on the scalp and face. These can progress to become skin cancer, however this is preventable if diagnosed and treated early.

Treatments include: cryotherapy (freezing procedure); creams that specfically target the condition; or surgery.
