This is seborrhoeic keratoses

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, a dermatologist.
You are talking about the brown spots on your hand?
These are seborrhoeic keratoses which are benign growths due to proliferation of skin cells ( keratinocytes).
These are harmless and are of cosmetic significance.
You can get them removed by radiofreqency ablation or laser ablation.
