What is angioma?

Over the entire period of the development of civilization, a person is constantly confronted with a multitude of diseases that can manifest themselves for absolutely unknown reasons. Some of them can be treated with special drugs or surgery, while others may be incurable.

Angioma is the name of a tumor, which consists of many newly formed blood vessels of the circulatory system (in this case, it is called “true angioma”) or lymphatic tissue (then it is called “lymphagioma”). It is possible to get rid of angiomas only by surgery (most of the other methods are ineffective).

What is an angioma and how does it look?

Simple angiomas are, for the most part, congenital tumors called birthmarks. They are a slightly elevated or flat tumor of a gray-blue or dark burgundy color, which consists of tortuous or coiled hair vessels. In addition, there are cavernous angiomas that can occur on the internal organs.
