Cherry angiomas are small red papules that appear spontaneously on the skin. They typically appear in middle age, and will proliferate. At first appearance, cherry angiomas may be a fraction of a millimeter in size, but typically grow to a couple of millimeters in diameter. Cherry angiomas are often benign, and present more of a cosmetic than a medical concern.
In some cases, cherry angiomas may be successfully removed through cryosurgery or electrosurgery. In other cases the physician treating a cherry angioma may recommend laser treatment.
