Cherry Angioma is a common skin condition that affects individuals over 30 years of age caucasian skin type. They are small in size measuring around 1 mm in diameter. These are smooth and bright, cherry-red in appearance.
The lesions may protrude (stick out) from the skin. Each of these lesions comprise of several weakened and enlarged blood vessels, encircled by lymph. Often, the growth assumes a dome-like form over the skin with the top being somewhat flattened. The color typically ranges from vibrant cherry red to dark purple.
The growths commonly arise on the trunk of the body, particularly on the back. However, they may also originate in other areas of the body. These are quite common skin growths that are found to vary in size.
These are benign growths that pose no risks to sufferers. However, some patients may prefer Cherry Angioma removal due to cosmetic reasons
Cherry angiomas are regarded as the most prevalent form of angiomas. There is a lack of proper knowledge about the causes and possible sources of these growths on the skin. It is attributed to half-hearted attempts by most researchers in the medical field. It is partly due to the fact that these lesions are benign and do not result in major complications.
Thermocoagulation or Cryosurgery has been used for removing these growths. These are benign growths that pose no risks to sufferers.
However, some patients may prefer Cherry angioma removal due to cosmetic reasons. The growths are cosmetically unattractive, especially when they appear on face. In some cases, these are also found to bleed frequently.
Some patients may also suffer from discomforts if the lesions arise in some region that creates problems while carrying out daily activities. Growths in uncomfortable spots may also be at risk from getting pressed by things like straps of backpacks or bags, bra straps and waist bands. It may be a good idea to remove the lesions in such cases and make the patient feel more comfortable.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) has recently been put to use for the treatment of these skin growths. The treatment is usually permanent and helps remove the lesions permanently. However, new growths tend to arise over time in new locations though they may require several years or more to grow large enough to be noticeable.
