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
