Hi, welcome to healthcaremagic community forum..
Spots are usually benign lesions unless proved by an biopsy.. However, few simple spots can over a period of time transform into cancers. There are few changes that occur during this transformation. Those changes are generally increase in the size of the spot, colour changes, texture changes, ulceration, pain and so on. Watching closely for such changes is essential in preventing malignant transformations and deciding the course of treatment..
