Hello V.SHeeja,
An age spot can be anything- melasma, seborrheic keratosis, actinic keratosis.
I will have to see the lesion to give you a firm diagnosis and treatment.
You may send your pics on gaurangkrishna3@gmail.com.
till then continue using Olay.

Hello my physician recently advised after a consult I have irritated keratosis with mild squamous atypia what does this mean and she advised cryotherapy. I have been addressing this issue to physicians since 6-7 years ago and finally a new physician was able to tell me what this was. I am a little worried she told me within the next 20 years it could turn into skin cancer. Is this true
