I have 11 cherry angiomas red moles all over my front torso

Customer Question

hi
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: I have 11 cherry angiomas red moles all over my front torso and some are also on my back and even starting to see them on my hands now... they are very small.. but bright red.. and the doctors I go to will not help me or prescribe me to get some tests done.
JA: When did angiomas first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: they appeared over a year ago... easily. I was seeing a nurse about it and she wanted me to keep seeing her... then she left the surgery.. quit her job the nurses are more helfpu lthan hte doctors where i go
JA: Got it. Have you seen a dermatologist about angiomas?
Customer: they rejected it... said it isnt covered under NHS..... saying its cosmetic issue when frankly it could be a sign of an underlying issue! this is mroe than cosmetic.. i have gone from 6 or 7 of them to 11 of them the last year on my front alone
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: I have used timodone cream for jock itc hthat they prescribed me, I will stop using it. I also have had sildenafil on repeat medication history for years.. I want to stop relying on that too.. as I think either of these could be linked to hormonal changes terbanifine I have also taken but I do not believe that would have caused it

Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

From my point of view they are not something significant

However, if you are really worried you can have blood tests and ultrasound tummy just to relax your mind

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
can i ask what ultrasound tummy is>?
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I see the doctors persepctive.. they are small.. and dont seem too out of hand.. but I am really worried about it because of the way tehy are slowly increasing year by year...
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
what blood tests do I need?.. and does my doctor have to grant my wishes upon asking?.. if they do not what should I do?..
Customer: replied 15 days ago.

I see... and can I have that done privately or on demand from my local doctors?
Expert:  Zee J replied 15 days ago.

If doctor/GP does not agree then you see some private GP

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I can switch gp surgery to another one near by if they dont agree... in the case of having to go private do you have any UK reccomendations?
