Best Answer

"Hemorrhagic" is the property of containing or secreting blood that shouldn't be there.

"Hemorrhage" refers to blood escaping from blood vessels of any kind.

A "lesion" is an area of damaged, missing, diseased, or otherwise abnormal tissue, such a sore. The most common lesions appear in the skin - pimples, cancer sores, burns.

A hemorrhagic lesion is one that either contains blood or is bleeding. Examples of hemorrhagic lesions: bruises, petechiae (tiny, bright red spots), "hickies".

In sum, hemorrhagic lesions can be harmless or very serious, depending on the type, location, and cause.
