What are Birthmarks?

Birthmarks are simply clumps of blood vessels close together.
The term "birthmark" can refer to all sorts of spots. One common type is the "hemangioma," which results from the clumping of several blood vessels in one spot. 

"Port-wine stains" are one instance of these harmless blotches. Others are bright red bumps (the "strawberry hemangioma"), and most disappear before adulthood.
