Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are small, unsightly growths that develop around the eyes, neck, armpits, and groin. They look like small little balls of skin attached to the body by a thin stalk. The medical name is acrochordon or fibroepithelial polyp. They are largely harmless and, with the exception of one rare variant, are not cancerous.
The tendency to develop skin tags is inherited but being overweight is also a contributing factor. The exact cause is unknown, but frictional pressure of skin rubbing against skin may be an influence. Skin tags may need treatment if they become inflamed or necrotic, but generally are considered a cosmetic problem.
