Theresa from Singapore asked a question

Could these tiny red spots on my face and limbs be due to cherry angiomas? (photos)

I'm a 22 year old female. I have been noticing some red mole-like spots on my arms for a few years now, I think they sarted appearing when I was 17/18. They did not pose me any problem but I recently started noticing them again because there are some that have started appearing on my face. I tried googling about them and found that they may be cherry angioma that tend to appear when people are in their 30s or 40s, but I'm only 22 so I'm starting to get worried and paranoid now. I'm afraid that they are cancerous or at least a hazard to my health. Should I seek help from a dermatologist?

Thank you for the question. 

Cherry aniogmas are small growths or proliferation of blood vessels. They do appear as you grow older, and is more common in the elderly.

However, it is not uncommon to have a few lesions at an earlier age. Some people are more prone to developing the cherry angiomas, and may have multiple lesions.

Thankfully, they are harmless and not cancerous and do not pose a health problem. However, it is difficult to prevent new lesions from appearing. 

They can be left alone and treatment is not necessary.  If you do find them to be burdensome, they can be removed by electro-surgical ablation or laser for cosmetic reasons.

Hi Theresa, 

Campbell de Morgan spots, also known as cherry angiomas, are common, harmless red spots that tend to appear in middle to older age individuals. They are formed by proliferating, dilated small blood vessels.  These do not need to be treated unless it is for cosmetic reasons. They do tend to bleed quite a lot when poked of scratched at. 

Treatment options include electrocautery or lasers to effectively close off the blood vessel. 

None of these will ever turn cancerous or lead to any potential long term effects on your health. It is possible to develop new ones though.
