Angiomas and Hemangiomas

What is it?

Typically noncancerous (benign) growths, angiomas are made of small blood or lymphatic vessels with a red or purple appearance. They are most common in adults and appear in both men and women. Angiomas can be found anywhere on the body and are more common on fairer skin complexions. The two most common types of angiomas are spider angiomas and cherry angiomas. The causes of most types of angiomas are unknown, but others, like cherry angiomas, are due to aging and don’t have any known significance.


Hemangiomas (commonly known as a “strawberry mark”) are red or purple benign growths that are a type of birthmark made of small blood vessels only (and not lymphatic vessels). They can appear anywhere on the body, especially on the face, chest and back. Hemangiomas can appear from infancy through childhood but often disappear by age 10.

How is it treated?

Angiomas and hemangiomas are typically harmless and tend to heal and resolve on their own. However, there are some cases where medical removal is needed for cosmetic reasons or if they start to change color or shape, bleed or generally become bothersome. If one of the Dermatology Partners medical providers deems treatment is necessary, they can be removed with a laser or liquid nitrogen to remove the blood vessels and damaged cells. Both of these treatments cause minor discomfort and generally have good cosmetic results. 


While most angiomas and hemangiomas are benign, it’s important to have them examined by one of our professional, board-certified dermatologists to ensure they are not malignant. Our team of board-certified dermatologists serving Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio will work with you to determine the safest and most effective treatment plan for your skin.
