Angiomas and Hemangiomas

Benign (non-cancerous) vascular growths that appear on the surface of your skin.

What is it?

Angiomas, minor elevated growths, may occur on any part of the body. Usually benign, these blemishes typically don't require intervention. But, if an angioma leads to discomfort or is positioned where it's susceptible to damage, one of our board-certified dermatology providers can remove it.

Hemangiomas are seen more frequently in infants and youngsters and can show up on the skin or on internal organs like the liver or brain. When on the skin, these are often referred to as strawberry hemangiomas owing to their bright red, protruding look. Hemangiomas that manifest on internal organs might not be discernible and might need additional examination to confirm a diagnosis.

Angiomas and hemangiomas are typically harmless and tend to heal and resolve on their own. However, there are some cases where medical removal is needed for cosmetic reasons or if they start to change color or shape, bleed or generally become bothersome. External factors, such as rubbing against clothing, sometimes warrant removal to avoid further problems.

How is it treated?

When treatment is deemed necessary, angiomas and hemangiomas can be removed with a laser or liquid nitrogen, eliminating the blood vessels and damaged cells. Both of these treatments cause minor discomfort and generally have good cosmetic results.  In the rare case that an angioma or hemangioma is malignant, our team will ensure you get prompt, appropriate care.

If you or your child need help with an angioma or hemangioma, schedule an appointment with one of our offices in Batavia, Beavercreek, Bridgetown, Cincinnati, Dayton, Dent, Greenville, Hillsboro, Kettering, Mason, Montgomery, Oxford, Troy, West Chester or Wilmington, Ohio.

We would love to get started on a solution that perfectly fits your needs.
