Finding a red mole on your body can be a cause for alarm but mostly it’s nothing to worry about. These red skin growths can occur anywhere on the skin and can have the appearance of bright cherry-red bumps.
The red color in these moles usually comes from the cluster of blood vessels that build up near the skin’s surface. The most common type of red moles is cherry angiomas which are sometimes called Campbell De Morgan spots or senile angiomas.
They usually grow on the trunk area and increase in number with age.
The good news is that red moles are usually harmless growths; however, you should always have any kind of new growth on your skin checked out by a doctor.
In this article, you will find out about the most common types of red moles and what you can do about them. In general, doctors don’t recommend to try and remove red moles by yourself as they need to be checked by a dermatologist first.
Dermatologists use a variety of methods to get rid of red moles including freezing them, removing them using laser, or cauterizing them.
