There are various types of pigmented lesions including:
Lentigines - a flat, brown spot on the skin present on skin with frequent sun exposure.
Seborrhoeic Keratoses - also known as seborrheic warts or basal cell Papillomas;
slightly elevated pigmented spots often found on the back and hands.
Freckles - a brownish spot on the skin, common on people with fair skin.
Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra - small, black marks seen primarily on people of Asian
or African descent
Melanin is the dark pigment present in skin and is produced by melanocytes. Pigmented
lesions occur when an abundance of melanocytes are found in the skin. When dark pigment
multiplies, it forms freckles, brown age spots and moles.
