Strawberry hemangiomas, or capillary hemangiomas or cherry hemangiomas, are growths that may appear on infants after birth and continue to grow through the first year of life. They are comprised of a grouping of small blood vessels in a tangled mass. The vast majority of these growths regress and do not require treatment.
