Customer Question
Hello, I'm ***** *****...

Hello, I'm ***** *****. I have a tiny spot on my nose and I'd like to know what it is.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It's a very small spot, red and has become ever so slightly raised since being in the sun. It doesn't bleed and hasn't changed in size. I've had it for a few years. It's on the left hand side of my nose, at the top. I'm just interested to know what it actually is.

Thank you for uploading picture ...

This seems to be collection of blood vessels , called Hemangioma .

This is not dangerous at all .

As its size is same and not changing , so no need to worry .

But if for cosmetic purpose you want to get rid of it than you should consult Dermatologist .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
