Introduction

Angiomas are benign tumors that are made up of small blood vessels. They usually appear at or near the surface of the skin. Angiomas may appear anywhere on the body, and aren't considered dangerous (although they may be present as symptoms of another more serious disorder, such as cirrhosis). When they are removed, it is generally for cosmetic reasons.
