A pyogenic granuloma is an overgrowth of a large number of tiny blood vessels in the skin. It is neither an infection, meaning it is not contagious, nor is it skin cancer.Most of the time, the reasons for its appearance are not known, but it seems that it can occur after a minor skin injury (cut, pricked by a thorn). It is more common in children and adolescents, but can occur at any age. Pyogenic granulomas are painless, red, nodular formations (collections of small blood vessels), which may crust over their surface after bleeding. They grow rapidly during the first few days, but after a few weeks they tend to stabilize. Their main characteristic is that they bleed easily, even after minor injuries.
