Skin tag, a cluster of tiny papillomatous skin coloured lesions. Skin tags are common tumors found in approximately 25%of males and females. They occur more often and in greater number in obese patients. The most frequent affected area is the axilla (48%), followed by the neck (35%) and inguinal region. The majority of carriers (71%) have no more than three skin tags per location. They can begin in the second decade, with a steady increase in frequency up to the fifth decade; above this age there is no further growth.The skin tags begin as a tiny, brown or skin-colored, oval excrescence attached by a short, broad-to-narrow stalk. With time, the tumor can increase to1 cm as the stalk becomes long and narrow. Patients complain that when they wear clothing or jewelry, these tumors are annoying. The stalks are easily removed by scissor excision or with a light touch of the electrocautery. Local anesthesia is usually not necessary.
