Freckle on palm?

About a year ago I noticed I developed a freckle on my left palm. I'm not usually prone to getting freckles, I barely have any. So, it was unusual to see I had one, let alone on my palm. Well, a year ago it was perfectly round and completely filled in with color. Today, a year later, it's spread out, round-square in shape and not has empty spots of color. Should I be worried?

Any freckle or mole on your hands and feet should be checked by a Dermatoligist ASAP. Your extremities are a common place for melanoma to develop. A Dermatoligist can track your moles or freckles to see if there is any change in them. This might be serious.
