Pyogenic granuloma is a relatively common skin growth that presents as a shiny red mass. It is sometimes called ‘granuloma telangiectaticum’. The surface has a raspberry-like or raw minced meat appearance. Although they are benign (non-cancerous), pyogenic granulomas can cause problems of discomfort and profuse bleeding.

The correct answer is I) Pyogenic granuloma. It is one of the vascular tumors with a polypoid appearance. It can be associated with pregnancy (buzz word as venky said) and trauma and can ulcerate and bleed.

Glomus tumor is a benign, painful and red blue tumor under fingernails. I will attach a photo with a glomus tumor.
