cherry angiomas on breast

Hi, I am 4 years post operation, for lobular ca, had reconn and so far all has been well. noticed that I have little red spots on other boob, and a couple on stomach. thinking these are age spots, 58 this year, googled !!!
cherry angiomas seem to be plausable, a benign condition, however it does say that these can rearley be a sign of a developing malignancy…stomach churning now, going on hols next week, I will see Bc team but not next week, any one any experience of these , they do look innocent ,but ???

thank you ladies

Hi there

Yes, I have developed some since my treatment. My team have seen them and so has my GP and they aren’t worried - they said they’re cherry angiomas otherwise called Campbell de Morgan spots. They are more likely to occur with age but I wonder if the treatment was a factor. they are also more likely to develop on the trunk of the body.

Strangely I also developed an haemingioma on my leg which had to be removed because it swelling up and bleeding. The GP did this and said that this was just something I was prone to and nothing to do with sun damage or anything like that either.

Get them checked out with your team for your peace of mind. You could either ask to see someone before you go away if you’re really anxious or see your GP about it.

Hope you have a good holiday!

I am covered with these … even more so post treatment. I wouldn’t worry … they’re benign. Xx

Ditto to the above I also have them on my torso although I have too say I’d never noticed them prior to treatment only after, so presume its treatment induced, my GP and Onc have seen them and aren’t worried by them xxx hope this helps xxxx

Thank you ladies, I will defo see the breast team, I think i may be just a wee bit paniky as it is 4 years to the day since my op, think our brains never stop working overtime… after a Bc diagnosis. onwards and upwards happy days , and peasce of mind to everyone xxx

Hi ladies, I’m one year post op, and just searced the web for Cherry angioma and came across your post. I too will see my breast cancer team but I’m worried as well – thank you ladies for posting your experiences it’s putting my mind at rest–But I am freaking out a bit too, do we have any results From the original poster? Xx

Yesterday I had a Mammogram and the Radiographer said that I should visit my Doctor to get the spots on my right Breast checked.  Just returned from the visit to the Doctors Surgery and was reassured that I were mearly Campbell de Morgan Spots. But reading some Items on this Forum there appear to be different opinions on what the prognosis is for these spots. Should I get a second opinion?


I have red spots as long as I can remember no doctor has ever queried them I wouldn’t worry about them says she Mrs worrypants everything always causes concern was never like before B.C diagnosis and I had quite a few cancer scares . So thought BC was another scare how wrong I was scared of my own shadow now haha
