Answer

Lentigines are benign by nature.

In patients in whom lentigines are associated with systemic abnormalities or complications, the prognosis may depend on the severity of the associated conditions.

Treatments with cryosurgery, lasers, and/or topical creams have been successful (see Medical Care).
