What is a Cherry Angioma?
Cherry angiomas are also loosely called red moles and these are very common skin growths that develop in any part of the body. They are also called senile angiomas or Campbell Dr Morgan Spots.
They are commonly seen in people who are 30 years or older. Clump of fine blood vessels just on the surface of the skin give them the typical cherry red colour hence its name Cherry Angiomas’.
They do not generally require any treatment but these can be removed by a skin surgeon or a dermatologist. These do not usually cause any symptoms but if bleeding ever occurs, it is advisable to seek professional help as bleeding in any mole could be a sign of a skin cancer.
