Cherry Angioma

Cherry angiomas are small, bright red, dome-shaped growths on the skin that are a type of benign tumor containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They range in size from 0.5 to 6 mm in diameter and are typically found on the chest, arms, and other parts of the body. Cherry angiomas are the most common type of angioma and increase in number with age, occurring in nearly all adults over 30.

The underlying cause of cherry angiomas is not well understood, but they appear to have a genetic component. They are more common in middle-aged and older adults. Cherry angiomas are not related to cancer and are usually asymptomatic, but can bleed profusely if injured due to the blood vessels being close to the skin surface.

Cherry angiomas are easily diagnosed based on their appearance. They can be removed for cosmetic reasons using method such as laser treatment.

In summary, cherry angiomas are very common, harmless skin growths that are not a cause for concern in most cases. They are easily diagnosed and treated if desired. At Da Vinci Clinic, we offer laser treatment for cherry angiomas. The procedure is fast, painless and comfortable.
