Ulcerated growth. Perineum of a 49 year old man with an ulcerated pyogenic granuloma. A pyogenic granuloma is neither pyogenic (producing pus) nor a granuloma (inflamed cells). It is a harmless overgrowth of tiny blood vessels. It often appear after minor injury and is prone to bleeding. The growth will normally disappear without treatment but can be removed by electrocautery, cryosurgery or more conventional surgery.
