Cherry angiomas increase with age. I have a million of them, and have not been diagnosed with any avms or vms. The sites you mention are typical for cherry angiomas and not for HHT-related telangiectasias. About your knee-to-thigh malformation, there is no determining what type of malformation is is with appropriate scans: CT, MRI, or an arteriogram. You should see an interventional radiologist or vascular surgeon to look into this, so you know what type of malformation you are dealing with, and which types of treatment may be appropriate for you. AVMs and VMs can progress and worsen -- it's better to know now what you have, so you can be prepared in future. If you are diagnosed with AVM or VM, then please join avmsurvivors.org
