What is a Cherry Haemangioma?
Cherry Haemangioma are made up of clusters of capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped. They range in colour from bright red to purple. When they first develop, they may be only a tenth of a millimeter in diameter and almost flat, appearing as small red dots. However, they then usually grow to about one or two millimeters across, and sometimes to a centimeter or more in diameter. As they grow larger, they tend to expand in thickness, and may take on the raised and rounded shape of a dome. Multiple adjoining angiomas are said to form a polypoidangioma. Because the blood vessels comprising an angioma are so close to the skin's surface, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if they are injured
What Causes Cherry Haemangioma?
The exact cause of Cherry haemangioma is unknown, but there may be a genetic factor that makes certain people more likely to get them. They’ve also been linked to pregnancy, exposure to chemicals, and climate. There also appears to be a link between Cherry haemangioma and age. They often begin to appear when individuals reach age 30, and seem to increase in size and number with age. Multiple haemangioma occur in more than 70 percent of people who are at least 70 years old
How Do CherryHaemangioma Develop?
Haemangioma are non-cancerous growths that form due to an abnormal collection of blood vessels. Haemangioma of the skin develop when blood skin or on the fatty layer underneath. In the beginning, it may appear to be a red birthmark or the size of a pin head on the skin. Slowly, it will start to protrude from the skin.
