Spider Angioma

Alternate Names : Spider Vein, Spider Nevi

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

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Liver disease such as cirrhosis may sometimes be avoided if the person stops drinking alcohol. Spider angioma may be a side effect of estrogen therapy, so could be avoided if the woman does not take estrogen. In normal persons without these risk factors, the cause of the spider angioma is unknown and prevention is not possible.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

There are no long-term effects of a spider angioma.

What are the risks to others?

Spider angiomas are not contagious, and pose no risk to others.
