Definition: Solar lentigo is the medical term for freckle. A freckle is caused when the melanin-producing cell, or melanocyte, is damaged by UV radiation causing it to get bigger

Mayo clinic defines them as Solar lentigo
Medical dictionary describes them as: Liver spot: A pigmented flat spot on sun-exposed skin in older adults, especially on the back of the hands and on the forehead. Liver spots are benign. Medically called a senile lentigo
