What does a brown spot on my white part of the eye mean?

Brown eyespots

Melanoma
Most spots on the whites of the eyes are due to pigmentary cells from embryonic development which produce such spots. These are common, have a much higher incidence in darker pigmented races, and are mostly benign. Rarely a spot might be a melanoma - watch for growth, discomfort and redness as clues to this.

Not sure

I would see my primary care doctor. These are very common and may be freckles but can be a indication of high cholesterol. Because I cannot see them myself, I would ask you to see your doctor.
