Could you attach a picture?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 10 months ago.

I had asked for a picture of the lesion and have not heard back.

There are several types of abnormalities of blood vessel origin that can happen in the skin. There are also certain skin lesions that are not primarily composed of blood vessels, but are very vascular.

Reviewing a picture may help, but it may ultimately need an examination by a Dermatologist if your regular doctor cannot clarify what type of lesion is present.

Yes, this appears to be vascular, such as a venous malformation. If this is stable, it may not require any treatment, but if it is progressive or bothersome, then it would be appropriate for you to be seen by a Plastic Surgeon.
