Vascular lesions are harmless blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. The harmless lesions can appear with either a red of purplish hue but look blood-colored. Vascular lesions can appear as: spider veins, telangiectasia, port wine stains, and hemangioma.
Cherry angiomas are red coloured papules on the skin containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They are the most common kind of angioma.
They are a harmless tumor, containing an abnormal proliferation of blood vessels, and have no relationship to cancer. They are the most common kind of angioma, and increase with age, occurring in nearly all adults over 30 years. Campbell de Morgan is the nineteenth-century British surgeon who first described them.
A cherry angioma is often bright red, circular or oval in shape, and small — usually ranging in size from a pinpoint to about one-fourth of an inch in diameter. Some cherry angiomas appear smooth and even with your skin, while others appear slightly raised. They most often grow on the torso, arms, legs, and shoulders.
Bleeding can occur if the angioma is scratched, rubbed, or cut open.

What causes cherry angiomas?
The exact cause of red moles is unknown but may be more likely in some people due to a genetic link. They can also be linked to chemicals, medical conditions, climate and pregnancy. Age may also be a factor, as cherry angiomas often begin to appear in people over the age of 30 years old and may increase in size and number over the years.
