I have some on my hands , upper arms, stomach and my breast. No they don't itch or hurt before they would go away. But now the ones I have are still there I am a diabetic and have osteoarthritis. Could one of these be the problem

Dear Momhewitt,
It sounds like you are developing cherry angiomas, which are small blood vessel growths. There is nothing to worry about. They do not indicate a disease, and in fact, are considered to be a cosmetic issue by the insurance companies, who will not pay for removal.
