What are skin tags and how are they removed?

Skin tags are small, benign flaps of tissue that hang off the skin, usually found on the neck, torso, or groin. Tags typically appear brown or flesh-colored and are thought to be caused by rubbing of the skin in folds or creases. They are particularly common in women during pregnancy, though almost anyone is susceptible.

Even though skin tags are harmless, they can be a nuisance, and are easily removed by electrocautery or freezing by liquid nitrogen. If you have a skin tag you would like removed, give our office a call today to schedule an appointment to easily remove the pesky growth.
