Actinic keratoses


Actinic keratoses

Actinic keratosis (AK or Solar keratosis) is a common, sun-induced superficial lesion on sun-exposed skin.
These lesions are now considered by most authorities as an early form of squamous cell carcinoma confined to the upper layer of the skin (epidermis).

If sunlight exposure can be reduced by good sun-protection habits such as daily sunscreen and clothing/hats, AK’s can spontaneously disappear and so it is never too late to start protecting your skin.
