Hi,

Cherry angiomas appear spontaneously in many people in middle age. They have no known cause in most cases. Very rarely, cherry angiomas may be caused by the presence of an internal malignancy. They can also be caused by exposure to mustard gas or 2-butoxyethanol.

Cherry angiomas are benign , fairly common skin growths that vary in size. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but usually develop on the trunk.

They are most common after age 40. The cause is unknown. Although painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry_angioma

Cherry angiomas generally do not need to be treated. If they are cosmetically displeasing or prone to bleeding, angiomas may be removed by surgery, freezing (cryotherapy ), burning (electrosurgery/cautery), or laser.

Let us know if you need any other information.

Regards.

I'm on this site sifting thru anything related to these cherry angiomas specifically concerning getting Lots of them all at once and the read possibility that it could be a warning of internal malignancy. I am a 28 female; had a few of these growing up but a fews years ago I got a TON of them at once. I don't know if they're related to my other health problems- most noteably the fact that I am ALWAYS exhausted no matter what. More than having 6 children could account for, anyway. I've had fatigue issues since I was 16 ish. I READ the wiki first, which is obviously what you keep copying and pasting from and you're supposed to be a DOCTOR hence MD and the Med Help site. Not impressed with the lack of responsibly attempting a clear answer for everyone. Please take the time to explain further without using wikipedia as your knowledge source??? Thanks!
