red skin growths
I have mulitiple, small red growths on my skin. Ive always had just a few for a while but one has grown out and more continue to appear. They kinda look like blood bumps, I dont know? Should this be a concern?

Hi,

This could be cherry angiomas, though nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions.

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

There is no relation with coronary artery disease.

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.
