Thanks for your query.

After having a look over the images I suspect them to be nevus.

Both the lesions appear non XXXXXXX but if there is any increase in size or appearances of such lesions in other places then it could be considered as potential risk for cancer.
Then you may have to get a biopsy of the lesions done where the details of the cells in it is studied which could identify cancer if any.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
