Actinic keratosis (AK) is a form of skin cancer and it is also known as solar keratosis. This indication tends to affect the sun-exposed parts of the skin such as face, bald scalp, lips, and the back of the hands among others. As a result of the exposure, the skin tends to become rough, uneven and display a warty look. Approximately, 10% of the exposed areas tend to develop squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which has the highest prevalence among rarer skin cancers. The American Academy of Dermatology has estimated that approximately 58 million people in the U.S. suffer from AK. In some rarer instances, AKs may also turn into basal cell carcinomas (BCC) – the most common form of skin cancer. Geographical location of a place is known to play a key role in development of this skin disease. Populations in countries closer to the Equator are more susceptible to be affected from AK that could eventually lead to SCC or BCC.

With advent in greater number of cures, the probabilities of higher diagnosis and treatments have increased manifold.

Actinic keratoses are found on areas of skin exposed to the sun - most commonly face areas such as nose & forehead, forearms, backs of hands in men, rims of ears, bald scalps, etc.
