Cherry Angiomas are one of the most common skin lesions that I encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Clinically, Cherry Angiomas appear as small red papules and can be found on any anatomic location. They typically begin at age 30 and we accumulate more with time. Occasionally, Cherry Angiomas may grow very large and become a pyogenic granuloma which is most common during pregnancy. As they are composed of blood vessels, Cherry Angiomas bleed profusely when traumatized. If treatment is desired, Cherry Angiomas can be removed with electrocautery or laser.
