- Created in Skin Growths
Pyogenic granulomas are benign vascular growths that grow rapidly and frequently present as raised, red lesions that bleed with minor trauma. These lesions are most commonly found on the face or fingers, but can also develop on other parts of the skin or oral mucosa (lips or gums). Children, teenagers, young adults, and pregnant women are most likely to be affected. They are often associated with pregnancy, medications, or injury or trauma to the site. Treatment options include topical therapies or surgical procedures to remove the growth.
