Vascular growth. Bleeder. Shave biopsy. Pyogenic granulomas are rapidly growing, benign, vascular proliferations. They are very common on the face and fingers but they can form anywhere on the body. Some weeks I remove 1-2 of these a day! I take them off the faces of babies and off the fingers of toddlers! Up to 5% of pregnant women will form these on their oral mucosa during pregnancy or soon after as this patient did. Eczema, infection, injury, hormone fluctuations, and retinoid use are all precipitating factors. Sometimes they just come out of nowhere without any precipitating factors. They will not go away on their own and need to be removed to stop their growth.
