A solar keratosis is a small, thickened, scaly growth (or lump) on the skin which is caused by a lot of exposure to sun over the years.
Several such lumps may develop.

They feel rough and dry, and are slightly raised from the surface of the skin. You can often feel them more easily than see them.
Some redness may develop in the surrounding skin and sometimes a finger-like growth of hard skin appears to come out of a Solar Keratosis ( a cutaneous horn).
