Any ideas what this may be?

My friend has got these spots on her chest, under her breasts. It started out as a small one a few years ago that has gotten bigger and more have come along. They don't give her any issues, no itching, burning, ect. They are flat, in different sizes and shapes.

She is well aware she should get them checked out, but she is a new mom, money is tight so of course the babies needs come first.

I am experiencing a similar, possibly the same, thing. I am not sure what it is but I am getting more and the ones I have are getting bigger. Has your friend found out what it is?

I would suggest her get them checked out. Any spots that appear where sun is less likely to occur on a daily basis (granted all skin does get some sun exposure, even with clothes on), like under breasts, on the nether regions, feet, etc. should be checked out. Especially if they're new or are changing in either size, color, or shape. I'm not saying there's anything wrong, but what's the harm in getting them looked at? Nothing. Knowledge is power. If she doesn't want to go right away, have her photograph them once a month to mark if there really are changes occurring. If they get much bigger or darker, she should get them checked out. Wish her luck!
