Growth on inner thigh

5898644?1278886324
Hi,

I found some redish bumps on my inner thigh several months ago.  I was wondering what they are.  They are round, and about 1mm in diameter, except for one which is 2-3mm.

Photo attached.

Thanks!

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but from the pictures, it looks like cherry angiomas. Cherry angiomas are made up of clusters of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, forming a small round dome ("papule"), which may be flat topped.

When they first develop, they may be only a tenth of a millimeter in diameter and almost flat, appearing as small red dots. They are benign but if the growths start growing in size or become rough in texture then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
