A.
Aging spots, or solar lentigos, primarily result from sun damage. Age spots have also been mislabeled as liver spots. (They do not have any correlation with liver disease.) The majority of age spots are benign (noncancerous). If you notice any changes in the border, color, or diameter of any lesions on your skin, you should be evaluated by your dermatologist.
