Cherry Angioma

Cherry Angioma | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the treatments for the condition?

Usually no treatment is needed for cherry angiomas. If their appearance is bothersome, angiomas may be removed by:

  • traditional surgery
  • cryotherapy, or freezing the lesion
  • cautery, or burning the lesion off
  • What are the side effects of the treatments?

    Removing cherry angiomas may result in small white scars at the site.

    What happens after treatment for the condition?

    More angiomas will appear with age. Angiomas that have been surgically removed may reappear at the previously treated sites.

    How is the condition monitored?

    Angiomas should be watched for any changes, to detect early signs of skin cancer. Any changes or concerns should be reported to the healthcare provider.
