Blood Cappillaries are One of the minute blood vessels that connect arterioles and venules and are a part of an intricate network throughout the body for the interchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other substances between blood and tissue cells.

I have a very small raised red freckle an inch below my eye. Surrounding it are visible capillaries/ blood vessels. The entire affected area is about 1 cm. but the freckle itself is about 1 mm. It hasn t gone away with time... and from my research online, it looks like it may be Telangiectasias. Is this something I should seek attention for immediately?

I had an MRI done about 4 wks ago and  the results stated that I had a Capillary Telangiectasia thats about 6mm in size. My neourologist stated that its something thats usually not treated and that the worst that could happen is that it could hemmorhage, cause a stroke and/or death, but that is very very very rare. Is that true?  Do I have anything to worry about? I am very scared. How would I know if it has ruptured? What can cause it to rupture? Thank you
