Treatment for angiokeratoma?

Treatment for angiokeratoma?

Angiokeratomas: Angiokeratomas are small bumps on the skin, about 2-4 mm in diameter, that appear like watery, blood-filled blisters (vesicles). These are a form of benign overgrowth of capillary blood vessels in the superficial skin. The most effective way to treat them if you want to get rid of them is by freezing (cryotherapy).

I'm a 32 y/o f with angiokeratoma on labia majora. What causes this? Is there an affordable treatment? If treated is it likely to recur?

I'm a 32 y/o f with angiokeratoma on labia majora. What causes this? Is there an affordable treatment? If treated is it likely to recur?

Symptoms?: Angiokeratomas are benign skin lesions of capillaries (tiny blood vessels). I am not sure what causes them. Most patients are without symptoms and do not require treatment. However, intermittent bleeding, itching, and pain can occur. Laser therapy is one outpatient treatment. Excision and grafting may be needed, which should be definitive therapy.

Is it possible to get rid of scrotal Angiokeratomas forever after cryotherapy or laser treatment. Best regards, Fadhel?

Is it possible to get rid of scrotal Angiokeratomas forever after cryotherapy or laser treatment. Best regards, Fadhel?

No, but. ..: Some men tends to have angiokeratomas on their scrotum, which requires no treatment if being free of mental & physical hang-up - concern, and there has been no known means to "cure" it. So, you needs to adopt and adapt to what you have got in life. I do realize this is not what you like to hear; but, I'm sure this is what you need to hear; don't let political correctness and commercialism rein.

Can you suggest any alternative treatments to reduce cysts?

Can you suggest any alternative treatments to reduce cysts?

Where?: Cystic change in the breasts is very common. Of course if you have a dominant breast mass, it needs to be seen as a possible cancer. Mainstream medicine has little to offer. I've had colleagues tell me that evening primrose oil is the first herbal to try for painful / lumpy breasts. An evidence-based holist in your community may be able to offer more.
