non-cancerous rapidly developing or growing vascular lesions that lie above the level of the surrounding skin. They are usually round, red & stop growing before reaching 1 centimeter in diameter . They bleed freely on slight trauma & are most commonly found on the face, chest or fingers. They consist of microscopic blood vessels(capillaries) & scar tissue covered by surface skin cells. A minor traumatic incident that is usually forgotten precedes their development. The treatment is removal by simple excision, scraping(curettage) or laser. They need to be completely removed to decrease the chance of recurrence & the best way to ensure complete removal is excision.
