Cherry Angioma Information and Treatment


Cherry angioma is painless and harmless, benign skin tumor of unknown origin which are cherrry red to purple in colour. Cherry angiomas can occur almost anywhere on the skin, but most commonly on the torso. It appears most frequently after age 40. They rarely occur on the hands or feet. Cherry angiomas are benign, fairly common skin growths that vary in size. A cherry angioma is painless and harmless, but many persons want them removed for cosmetic reasons. Cherry angiomas are cherry-red bumps ranging from a tiny speck to the size of a pencil eraser. Large angiomas can bleed profusely when they are injured. Because of this, don't puncture them or try to remove them yourself. It occur more frequently with increasing age. In the past, the lesions often were referred to as senile angiomas. If cherry angiomas are cut or injured they can bleed profusely.  Any growth that suddenly changes in size, color, shape, bleeds, itches on a regular basis or becomes inflamed or irritated needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist. There are multiple laser treatments for cherry angiomas. 

Cherry angiomas are extremely common and are often familiars. The cherry-red "bumps" develop alone or in groups, most often on the torso and frequently on the face, scalp, neck, arms and legs. Angiomas do not need to be treated unless they bleed or are bothering one. Because laser treatment is rapid, large numbers of red spots can be treated in a very short period of time. Large angiomas can bleed profusely when they are injured. Medical intervention is not helpful and not indicated in the treatment of the benign vascular proliferations of cherry hemangiomas. Genetics play a role in the formation of Cherry angiomas. Some families have a tendency to develop  more angiomas than others. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured. Cherry angiomas are benign and generally harmless. Removal usually does not cause scarring. Removal of a cherry angioma should take place under a doctor's care.
