Dark spots on lips?


Hello, about 2 weeks ago I noticed that my mom had a brownish spot on her upper lip. It looks like a sort of blackhead, but it's brown. A few days ago I saw another spot on the other side of her upper lip. I also looks brown but sometimes looks purple too (depending on the light). It doesn't look exactly like the other one, but it's pretty similar. I was wondering if these spots could be something dangerous or not. She also has dry lips. Could it be something like melanoma? If not, what can it be?  I'm always worried about my moms skin because she is quite fair skinned and was a redhead as a child. She's 44 and usually wears lip balm with 15 SPF but not always. Thanks

I would advise her to get it checked out.  While redheads do tend to freckle, it's worth getting the advice of an expert.
