Angioma & Vascular lesions
Many skin lesions are formed by blood vessels and are completely benign.
They are called angiomas and the most common types are:
• spider angiomas (broken capillaries or telangiectasia) on the face or body
(on the legs they are known as varicose or spider veins)
• cherry angioma, are harmless lesions made of blood vessels.
They are sometimes incorrectly referred to as ‘red mole’,
but they are not pigmented lesions or moles.
• venous lake is blue angioma on the lip
• flat angioma also known as port wine stain
