Angiokeratomas

Angiokeratomas

What is Angiokeratoma?
Angiokeratomas are non-cancerous skin conditions caused by abnormal dilation of capillaries, with some resultant thickening over the overlying skin. When angiokeratomas happen over the scrotum, it forms a very common condition in men, known as Angiokeratoma of Fordyce.

What you should know
Angiokeratomas of Fordyce presents as multiple nodules of varying size, from 2mm to 5mm over both sides of the scrotum. They come in multiple colourations, from red, blue to bluish-black. Most patients with this condition do not have symptoms, but some patients experience pain, irritation, burning sensation, itch. Unlike genital warts, this is not a sexually transmitted disease, like genital warts?

Complications
Angiokeratomas are cosmetically unsightly and can be a source of embarrassment. Sometimes, angiokeratomas can bleed after scratching or sexual intercourse as well. These nodules are otherwise benign and non-cancerous. However, they do not disappear spontaneously and can even increase with age.

Treatment
Most patients with angiokeratomas do not require treatment. However, if treatment is desired for cosmetic reasons, the options include: Cryotherapy, Electrosurgery, Laser Treatment and even surgery.
