Cherry Angiomas or ‘Campbell de Morgan’ spots are a type of skin lesion. They are named due to their distinctive red colour, caused by broken or damaged blood vessels within them. They can be flat or raised and are usually found on the torso, arms and shoulders (although they can appear anywhere.) This type of lesion is benign and should not cause you any problems, but they may bleed if they are scratched, rubbed or knocked. As with any skin lesion, if you notice changes in size, shape or colour,
it would be best to ask your doctor to check it for your peace of mind.
Cherry Angiomas will not disappear on their own, but they can be removed at our clinic in Carlisle.
