What is a Cutaneous (Skin) Granuloma?

Cutaneous granuloma presents as a fleshy bump on the skin and this can often be linked with other stimulus as a causative factor such as infection, presence of a foreign body such as body jewellery, malignancy, chronic inflammatory conditions, metabolites etc. As their origin is uncertain in most cases a tissue biopsy is often required.

One of the most common types of granulomas that we come across is called pyogenic granuloma and we will discuss this in detail here:

What is Pyogenic Granuloma?

Pyogenic granuloma are benign, noncancerous lesions that are small, round and blood red in colour. They tend to bleed as they contain a large number of fine blood vessels clumped together. This skin growth commonly occurs in children and young adults. However, it can occur in people of all ages.

Pyogenic granuloma starts as a lesion with a rapid growth rate during the initial few weeks. This growth then stabilizes as a raised reddish nodule of less than 2 cm. It appears as smooth or crusty (if it bleeds a lot).

What are the common sites of Pyogenic Granuloma?

Pyogenic Granulomas usually occur on the hands, fingers, chest, arms, face, neck, and back. They can also occur on the eyelids, lips, and genitals.

What causes Pyogenic Granuloma?

The cause of Pyogenic Granuloma is usually unknown. They can occur after an injury including trauma due to bug bites or scratching the skin roughly or frequently. Hormone changes during pregnancy can also cause Pyogenic Granuloma. Certain medications like Birth Control pills, Isotretinoin, and Indinavir can also be the cause.

How is Pyogenic Granuloma diagnosed?

Your doctor can diagnose Pyogenic Granuloma based on its appearance. A biopsy will also help to make an accurate diagnosis. It helps rule out malignancy which can present with similar lesion.

What are the treatment options?

Small Pyogenic granulomas usually resolve on their own. Larger granulomas are effectively removed by shaving them off and cauterizing the base. Cauterizing helps stop the bleeding and reduces chances of recurrence.

Pyogenic granulomas are treated by CO2 laser at Renew Skin and Health Clinic in Royal Leamington Spa. Excision or Cauterization are also the options and can be considered if the diagnosis is uncertain, in which case the tissue will be excised and sent for histology for further evaluation.

In our Clinic, you can avoid the long NHS waiting time to see a specialist. We provide you with a same-day appointment at an affordable cost. The service is available every day. The cost of treatment depends on the area being treated and the size.
