Cherry Angioma

Cherry Angioma

Photo of a person's back with cherry angiomaA commonly found type of angioma, known as cherry angioma, is a harmless skin growth resembling a mole. It occurs due to an excessive growth of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. Typically, cherry angiomas are more prevalent in individuals above the age of 30 and tend to increase in number as one gets older. However, if a sudden appearance of numerous cherry angiomas takes place, it may indicate the presence of another type of angioma that necessitates immediate medical examination by a dermatologist.

Cherry angiomas are characterized by their small, smooth, and vibrant red bumps, which can range in size from as tiny as a pinhead to as large as a quarter-inch in diameter. 

The Treatment

In most cases, these growths do not require any treatment. Nevertheless, removal of cherry angiomas might be recommended if the patient finds them aesthetically displeasing or if they are prone to bleeding. The removal procedure can be carried out using laser excision, a shave biopsy, or electrocautery, but it is important to note that scarring may occur as a result.
