They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms — areas most exposed to the sun. Age spots are very common in adults older than age 50. But, younger people can get them too, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun. Although age spots can look like cancerous growths, true age spots are harmless and don’t need treatment.
