Cherry Angioma - Blood Spot - Campbell De Morgan. A mole-like skin growth made up of small blood vessels, or capillaries. It is the most common type of Angioma. Angioma are benign tumours that result from an overgrowth of capillaries. It is rare for children to develop these non cancerous lesions. They are mostly found on people over 30 years old. These benign lesions are related to ageing and tend to increase in number as a person becomes older.
Warts are small, rough growths which are caused by certain strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). They can appear anywhere on the skin but are most commonly seen on the hands and feet. Verrucae (also known as a plantar wart) is a wart on the sole of the feet.
Solar Lentigo/ Age spots are a harmless patch of darkened skin. it results from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which causes local proliferation o melanocytes and accumulation of melanin within the skin cells (keratinocytes). Solar Lentigo or Lentigo nets are very common, especially in people over the age of 40 years.

Skin tags are small brown or flesh-coloured growths that hang from the surface of the skin. They are made from a core of fibres, ducts and nerve cells and are covered by the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. Although skin tags are common they are completely harmless and are usually only a few millimetres in size.
Milia are tiny (1-2mm) cysts filled with keratin, a type of protein within the skin. They develop under the top layer of the skin and can often appear around the eyes, nose or on the cheeks and don't have the same inflammation as whiteheads. There are two main types: Primary milia are formed directly from trapped keratin; Secondary milia form after something clogs the ducts leading to the skin surface, usually after a trauma to the skin, such as an injury or burn
