CHERRY ANGIOMA REMOVAL

What are Cherry Angioma?

Red moles, or cherry angiomas, are common skin growths that can develop on most areas of your body. They’re also known as senile angiomas or Campbell de Morgan spots. 

They’re usuallycallout found on people aged 30 and older. The collection of small blood vessels inside a cherry angioma give them a reddish appearance.

This type of skin growth is typically not a cause for concern unless it bleeds often or changes in size, shape, or color. Talk to your doctor if you notice any bleeding or changes in appearance. These could be symptoms of skin cancer.
