Detailed Answer:


According to your complaints, it could be a cherry angioma or pyogenic granuloma.

Both are benign vascular lesions with a tendency to bleed.

They need to be removed by electrocautery or radiofrequency ablation.

These are minor office procedures requiring 20-25 minutes.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
