What Are Angiomas?
Angiomas are benign (non-cancerous) skin growths. They can appear anywhere on the body as raised, red circular lesions. There are two main types of angiomas: spider (mostly found in children), and cherry angiomas (usually present in adults over the age of 30). Angiomas typically do not go away on their own.
Although the angiomas are benign growths, have your angioma checked out if it begins to bleed or changes in size, shape, or color. Diagnosing angiomas is quick and easy and typically only includes an evaluation by a skilled dermatologist.
What Treatment Options Are Available?
Angiomas are most commonly removed for aesthetic reasons. However, the skin growth is occasionally removed for medical purposes. For example, you may opt to have your angiomas treated if they become inflamed due to excessive rubbing from clothing, seatbelts, or purse straps.
At Derrow Dermatology, we have a variety of treatment methods depending on the size, shape, and location of your angiomas.
