Cherry angiomas treatment

Cherry angiomas are noncancerous skin growths which are bright red in color. They are typically anywhere from needle-sized to a quarter of an inch in diameter. Cherry angiomas are said to have a smooth texture. The condition does not always need to be treated but it can be. There may be a need for a medical procedure to remove the cherry angiomas. You can try treating the condition at home but it is recommended that you do not attempt to remove it on your own as there can be excessive bleeding if done wrong.

Natural Treatments for Cherry Angiomas

There are various natural remedies for cherry angiomas which can be done at home. One example of this would be a recipe which consists of fresh basil leaves and sandalwood powder. This mixture creates a paste which can be applied to the affected area. Another example of a natural treatment for cherry angiomas is a paste that consists of grounded strawberry leaves.

Cryotherapy for Cherry Angiomas Removal
One of the most effective ways to remove a cherry angiomas growth is to use cryotherapy. This is a treatment method which utilizes freezing of the growth to remove it. This is a preferable alternative to the other options such as electrosurgery and laser surgery. Cryotherapy works by applying liquid nitrogen to the area of the cherry angiomas growth. This will freeze the growth and allow it to be removed easily. The result of this will be complete removal of the growth and your skin appearance will be much more positive afterwards. If you find that the growth is a serious eye sore then you may want to get cryotherapy to remove the growth.

Identifying a Cherry Angiomas Growth
Identifying a cherry angiomas should not be very difficult. As previously mentioned, the growth is relatively small in size, bright red in color, and has a smooth texture. The growth may begin as a very tiny and almost unnoticeable tick but it will grow to up to a quarter of an inch in diameter or maybe just a little more. The growth is often noticed simply due to the bright red color and this is usually the main characteristic that is factored when identifying or diagnosing the growth.

Professional diagnosis of a cherry angiomas growth is often done by a skin specialist. All the specialist has to do is look at the growth to determine what it is. If further diagnosis is required to confirm that the growth is a cherry angiomas then a skin biopsy may be done.

Is Removing the Cherry Angiomas Necessary?
It is not completely necessary to remove the growth. The only reason that you may want to remove it is if it has a major psychological affect on you or it begins bleeding profusely due to an injury of the affected area. Many people strongly dislike having the growth on their skin and this is especially true if it is in any of the easily visible areas of their skin.

If you do not want the growth to have any negative affects on your physical appearance then you may want to go through the effort of removing it. If it does not have any serious affects on your daily life then you will not have to worry about removing it as it is generally harmless anyway.

Final Thoughts
A cherry angiomas growth is typically harmless. The only real issue that it may have for most people is the visual defect that it causes. Some individuals have more than one of them on their body as well and this can be even more displeasing. Besides the psychological and physical image issues that are caused by the growth, if it is injured then it may begin bleeding excessively.

If you have a cherry angiomas growth and you can treat it or remove it for an affordable price then it would be worth it. However, if the growth is in a hard to see spot on your body and you cannot afford the costs of removing the growth then it would be suggested to just leave it alone for now. Ultimately, a cherry angiomas growth is not going to cause any serious problems but removal of the growth is possible if you really want to get rid of it.
