Aging spots - should you be concerned

Age spots (liver spots) are very common and are usually nothing to worry about. Be sure to let your doctor know if you notice any unusual spots, however. Some signs of possible Malignant melanoma include irregular shape, irregular borders, dark colors, multiple colors, large size, or any changing spot.
