When small veins cluster together forming a bright red mole-like spot, it is known as a cherry angioma. Broken blood vessels within a cluster give cherry angiomas their coloration. These spots can be found on any part of the body and can develop at various points in life, though they typically occur after the age of 30.
Are Cherry Angiomas a Health Risk?
Cherry angiomas range in size between a pinprick to one fourth of an inch. They can be slightly raised, causing risk for bleeding if scratched or irritated. Studies show that they are not cancerous and don’t usually present any serious health concerns, though they may be embarrassing when they occur in obvious areas such as your face.
