Have spot on stomach. No medication till now. What to do?

Hi, I am 31 years old female and I have light brown spots appearing on the stomach area. It started with a small dot and now the dots are growing bigger in size of a dime. M not sure but it started appearing one year after I gave birth. That brown spot rubs off like a dirt but it appears again..there's no pain and no itchiness. M scared it might spread all over the body and it looks ugly too.

BASED on the information its seems like "CHLOASMA" which are normally found in various body parts due to increase in estrogen which stimulate the MELANIN pigment over production.

No need to worry about it, getting into any form of cancer but its seems a cosmetic issue as far as I can understand. In such cosmetic issue the simple excision of the area will do the trick , but second issue is the healing may lead to formation of scar, hence need to consult a LASER or cosmetic surgeon to deal with it.

1) Nothing to worry its normal occurrence in or after pregnancy.
2) Consult a COSMETIC/LASER surgeon in case of its removal, as normal excision may lead to scarring.

Hope it helps to solve the issue.
