I have heard brown spots referred to as liver related..although have not heard of this as a chemo reaction. Maake sure you report them to your DR. Bud

I would also encourage you to inform your dr. about the spots, just to be on the safe side, but I also have the spots on my feet, face, and hands from my chemo. I also get dark lines in my fingernails. I'm getting FOLFOX with Avastin and am not sure exactly which of the combination of drugs causes this discoloration, but it isn't something to worry about and should go away once chemo is over.

Good luck,
BB

Vicki, I got brown freckling from chemo also. On my face and arms. It never went away. I still have brown freckles. D ~
