A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma is a small tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) - they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Skin tags can appear on any part of the surface of the body (skin), but most typically exist in areas where skin may rub against skin, such as the eyelids, under the breasts, groin, upper chest and neck.
Skin tags are invariably benign - non cancerous - tumors of the skin which cause no symptoms, unless it is repeatedly rubbed or scratched, as may happen with clothing, jewelry, or when shaving. Very large skin tags may burst under pressure. Most common treatments for Skin tags include Cauterization, Cryosurgery, Ligation and Excision.
