Brown Spots on Soles of Feet

Thursday, 09 September 2010 09:21 AM

Question: I have brown spots on the bottoms of my feet. What could they be?

Dr. Hibberd's Answer:

Changes in the border or color of existing pigmented skin lesions in an adult may deserve an examination by your personal physician or dermatologist and perhaps a skin biopsy to rule out melanoma. Though these may be simply dysplastic nevae (moles), they probably should be removed.
