Angioma - Symptom, Causes & Treatment
An angioma is a benign tumor that consists of small blood vessels. They are most common after age 40. The cause of angioma is unknown. It is defined in simple terms as red dome-shaped lesion usually occurring on the trunk and formed as a result of the weakening of the capillary wall.
Angiomas may appear anywhere on the body, and aren't considered dangerous. There are many different types of angiomas -
- cherry angioma
- Spider angiomas
- Cavernous angioma
Angiomas do not need to be treated unless they bleed or are bothering you.
