Many people were not aware of the different cherry angiomas treatment options and how to choose what’s best for them.
Cherry angiomas are small, dark, dome-shaped skin lesions. Cherry angiomas usually appear on the cheeks and can also appear on the forehead, neck, chest, and arms. Although they are most commonly found in women of color (particularly African Americans), they can occur in anyone. Cherry angiomas are not dangerous but may be disfiguring or unsightly to some people.
What is a Cherry Angioma?
Cherry angiomas are a rare and benign type of vascular tumor that may develop on the skin of your face, chest, arms, hands, legs or feet. Although they are usually painless and tend to be solitary in nature, these tumors can cause disfiguring marks. These marks also give rise to a host of emotional problems such as depression and anxiety.
It is true that there are many treatments available for cherry angiomas but they cannot always provide the results you want.
Cherry angiomas, also known as Cherry hemangiomas, are small and irregularly shaped. They may appear anywhere on the body. As they grow, they will start to cause you pain.
What is the Cause of Cherry Angiomas?
Cherry Angiomas are most commonly found on the face, neck, and arms. These tumors occur when blood vessels start to grow abnormally in the skin. In most cases, there is no obvious cause of cherry angiomas and they can be treated with cosmetic procedures such as laser surgery or dermabrasion.
