Brown spots on the skin are either freckles or moles. Freckles are small pale brown spots on the skin. Some people have a lot of freckles, which usually appear on the arms and face. Some freckles are caused by sun exposure. Moles on the other hand are darker and larger in appearance. People often associate moles with skin cancer. However, it is important to realize that, while some types of moles can be a sign of skin cancer, other types are completely harmless.
