Can I Get a Third Opinion?

I've got this "thing" that appeared on my face a few months ago and has gradually grown a little. It's raised, and I constantly want to pick at it, because it just doesn't belong there. I saw a Physician's Assistant, who told me that it's "just a mole." Not satisfied, and concerned that it might be skin cancer, I made an appointment with a dermatologist. My appointment was Thursday.

I'm happy to say it's not cancer.

But now I have a new worry; it's called "Seborrheic Keratoses." You've seen it before....

....on your grandma's face.


P.S. Please do not Google Seborrheic Keratoses, as the photos you will see are absolutely disgusting, and what I have is SO minor comparatively speaking. I should thank my lucky stars that mine is very small and barely noticeable. (But I can't, because old people are crotchety like that.)
