Cherry angiomas

[B]I am 60 year's old and have had a mole on my belt line, which looks
like a cherry angioma, I keep riping it open with my belt, and it bleeds like crazy, I went to the doctor to have it cut off, it was about a 1/4 of an inch around, I was told they could grow up to the size of a nickle, anyway the doctor said that he was sure it was cancer, not the deadly kind and had it sent off to find out, he said he was about 70 percent sure it was cancer, and if it was he would have to go in and cut it out,, but would not require chemo, I have never heard of a cherry angioma being cancer before , and he has got me scared half to death, my anxiety is through the roof waiting for an answer from him and keep praying.
has anyone else ever heard of a cherry angiomas being cancer before.

Re: Cherry angiomas

Sounds like a basal cell carcinoma

Sometimes one of these can look like a cherry angioma. It is a low-level skin cancer that isn't really dangerous. My dermatologist suspected one on my face one time, but it turned out to be ok.

I wouldn't worry too much, just have your annual exam and keep a lookout for anything that looks very "shiny" or glass-like.
