Cherry angiomas are the most common vascular lesion. They consist of highly concentrated dilated capillaries and can be flat to the skin or larger and slightly raised. Their appearance is a cherry red to purplish colour. Spider Angiomas (spider naevus) are a combination of a cherry angioma in the center and dilated capillaries that radiate outwards similar to a spider web. 

Common Causes

Cherry angiomas usually appear as we age and typically start out as a small red dot, although they can grow up to a few centimeters in diameter. They are very common and can be found on many areas of the body but are most common on the torso. They usually occur on fair-skinned people and are a hereditary trait.
