Most times people get dark spots on their skin when they get older and it's usually a natural part of aging.

But sometimes "although rare" dark spots on your skin can be a form of Melanoma Cancer and if you have dark spots on your skin and you're not that old you should get to the doctor to have them check you out to be sure the dark spots are not cancer.
