    Brown dots not from sun
    So I'm 15 and overnight I have grown about 15 little brown dots all over my left hand and arm. Also, on my right wrist there are a few. It's not sun, as I live in Ireland and we get the most crap weather ever and it's Winter right now, so there's no chance it's the weather. I'm really scared in case it's skin cancer :( can someone help please :(

    How big are they... and are they raised or flat? Also how dark. Like light brown, medium brown or deep dark brown.

    What is your natural hair color, as in darker hair people are more prone to this than light colored hair people.


    And are you what is considered having a fair complexion, or more on the average or dark side.

    Skin cancer would tend to be irregular in shape... moles tend to be more regular in shape. Skin cancer would also grow in size.

    If you have any real doubts... see a doctor, they would be able to tell the difference.

    Size is tiny, like the size of a full stop (.) they're flat. And they're deep dark brown
    My natural hair colours brown.
    Thanks by the way

    They may be moles... they can pop up throughout your life... but they never go away.

    Keep an eye on them... if they start looking like small animal shapes, as in not round or oval, then see a doctor. Most likely all you have are moles.

    Here is a good link with Photos from the Cancer Research Institute.
