The main concern regarding actinic keratoses is that they can give rise to a type of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma. They also represent significant sun damage to the skin, therefore people with actinic keratoses should visit their doctor regularly for a skin examination and screening for skin cancer.

Various treatments are available at SkinCentral for the treatment of actinic keratoses, including cryotherapy, biopsy and surgical removal, topical chemotherapy (Imiquimod, 5-Fluorouracil), and photodynamic therapy.
