Venous lakes are dark blue or purple nodules caused by a collection of blood. Though venous lakes may develop anywhere on the body, they are most often seen on the lower lips. Venous lakes are often soft and squashable and can vary in size, ranging from 0.2 to 1 cm in diameter. They are benign and are often confused with melanoma due to their dark colour.
Cherry angiomas, (also referred to as senile angioma or Campbell de Morgan spots) are red-to-purple spots that often appear on the torso of the body. They may also sometimes develop on the legs, arms, chest and scalp. They are benign skin growths made up of dilated blood vessels and are common in adults. There are often a large number of these lesions.
The word cancer refers to the abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells that have the potential to invade surrounding tissues (skin, fat, bone, etc.) or spread to distant tissues or organs. There are various types and stages of skin cancer and not all are equal in the way they appear, grow or are managed.
