When you see cherry angiomas (or shiny red-colored dots), consider it an early warning sign of estrogen dominance, especially if there are strawberry dots on the tongue as well. The location of the cherry angiomas is helpful in determining what may be the problem.
If the cherry angiomas are accompanied by lunulae (half moon) only on the thumb, there may be increased risk for breast, prostate, ovarian, and endometrial cancer.
Cherry Angiomas on the Forehead: Stroke/Aneurysm Risk Cherry angiomas on the forehead or hairline (see Figure 1) can indicate a stroke or aneurysm risk. Again, this is also tied to hormones, particularly estrogen. These angiomas on the head signify estrogen attacking the brain artery, which has estrogen receptors. Estrogen has also been shown to increase the risk of blood clots, which can cause a stroke. Many studies have determined that excess estrogen (and low testosterone in men) doubled the risk for stroke and increased the risk for heart attacks, atherosclerosis and blood clots.If you have cherry angiomas on the forehead, check your C-Reactive Protein (CRP) level. A CRP higher than 3.0 typically signifies inflammation and a risk for cardiovascular disease.Understanding this information provided from your body can assist you in understanding your next steps in your health journey.
