Campbell de Morgan

Campbell de Morgan also known as cherry angiomas or blood spots are benign skin growths made up of blood vessels. 


They are bright red and can appear anywhere on the body, but are mostly found on the torso. They range in size from a pinhead to a quarter inch in diameter but are painless. 


What Causes Campbell de Morgan Spots?


Nobody knows for sure what causes them but they may be hereditary and related to hormonal changes. They can affect both men and women and can form in late 30's/40's.

How Are Campbell de Morgan Spots Diagnosed?


A medical professional will usually make a diagnosis just by looking at the spots. While cherry angiomas are non-cancerous, it’s important to make sure you’re not dealing with something more serious. I would recommend having a medical professional check them out if you have red spots or angiomas that bleed, that are painful or itch a lot, or that seem to be changing in colour and shape.


How Are Campbell de Morgan Angiomas Treated?


In many cases, no treatment is necessary. However, sometimes the angiomas bleed frequently, or can they stick out from the skin and may catch on clothing that can cause injury and bleeding. If people are concerned about how the spots affect their appearance, especially if there are several of them and if they occur in a highly visible place, like on the face they may want to have them treated. 


Cherry angiomas are usually removed via some sort of minor surgical procedure, such as excision (shaving off the spot), electrocautery (burning off the spot) or cryosurgery (freezing off the spot with liquid nitrogen). Sometimes laser therapy is used instead to remove these spots. Removing multiple angiomas may take longer and cause more discomfort than just removing a single angioma.


Your medical practitioner will assess and discuss their recommended procedure best suited for you based on the location and number of spots you have, as well as any other medical concerns you may have.
