I’m 46 yrs old with a cherry angiomas on my lower tummy. A few days ago, it bled and felt painful when pressed. Is this normal, and is it possible for a cherry angioma to develop into a skin cancer?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Dear Jmong,

Cherry angiomas are benign prolieration of blood vessels and do not develop into cancer. They usually do not bleed easily unless thay are traumatized. It is also unusual for cherry angiomas to be painful when pressed.

Another cause of a vascular bump that bleeds easily is a pyogenic granuloma. This may develop following trauma to the skin.

Cherry angiomas usually do not require treatment. However, if it continues to bleed and is painful,  you should consider visiting your dermatologist or doctor to get it checked out. They can easily be removed by electrosurgical ablation.

Dear Jmong,

Cherry angiomas are red mole-like bumps that are benign. It can usually be left alone. If desired, it can also be removed by laser. While cherry angiomas are benign, it is good to consult a doctor if you are concerned if a lump is indeed a cherry angioma or skin cancer. The doctor would assess the lump and send it for a biopsy if necessary.

Regards, Dr. Terence Tan
