What is a Skin Tag?

  • Skin tags are benign growth of skin tissue attached to the skin by a connecting stalk.  They are not dangerous, just bothersome. Skin tags are not developing cancer.  They are most commonly found on the back, under the breasts, around the neck and eyelids, armpits, on the chest, or in the groin area.  They are most pronounced in women or men who have gained significant amounts of weight.
  • Generally, skin tags don’t cause any pain unless tags are irritated by clothing or jewelry that is rubbing excessively on the tag.
  • It is important to see a dermatologist before removing any skin tag, since a mole may look like a skin tag to an untrained eye.
  • Skin tags are noncancerous.
  • Skin tags are also called fibroepithelial polyp or acrochordon.
  • Skin tags are usually skin-colored or hyperpigmented (dark), turning the color  black or purple may suggest a vascular compromise and need immediate attention
  • Skin tag size may range from 2 mm to 5 cm

How Are Skin Tags Treated?

The following treatment options tend to be the most common for skin tags and are offered by our dermatologists at the TXID San Antonio Skin Tag Removal Clinic:

  • Shaving it off (shave or excision) using a scalpel or scissors
  • Freezing it off (cryosurgery)
  • Burning it off using an electric current (electrosurgery)
  • Laser surgery, remove the tag using a Co2 laser

Skin Tags Are Occasionally Associated With Other Diseases

On occasion, multiple skin tags are associated with systemic diseases such as Birt-Hogg-Dube (BHD) syndrome. BHD is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis that is characterized by skin tumors, including multiple fibrofolliculomas, trichodiscomas, and acrochordons. BHD patients may develop kidney and colon cancer.
