Are cherry angiomas hereditary? My mom has a lot, and i'm developing new ones frequently as i get older. Are they really a sign of internal malignancy

In brief: Dont worry

A sudden outbreak of a great many seborrheic keratoses warns of internal malignancy ("sign of leser-trelat") but this is not true of common cherry angiomas.
If you want, a physician who's invested in a laser can remove them easily.
