Actinic keratoses are pre-cancerous areas on chronically sun exposed areas. A portion of these, if untreated, may progress to squamous cell carcinoma. It is best to treat these before they develop into squamous cell carcinoma.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer. In the U.S., more than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed in more than 2 million people each year.
