Actinic (= sun-related) Keratoses (= rough, scaly spots) are precancerous spots that in up to 10% – 15% of cases can turn into squamous cell carcinoma. This type of tumor can potentially spread (metastasize) to the surrounding skin, lymph nodes, or other organs of the body. Other skin cancers treated at our center include basal cell carcinoma, Bowen’s Disease (carcinoma in situ), and malignant melanoma.
