Skin Tag Pictures
Skin tags commonly appear along the neckline, under the arms, beneath the breasts, on the eyelids and even in the groin. Skin tags pictures show these fleshy-colored growths on a small stalk that protrude from the skin. The most common place is the armpit and when they are in awkward places, skin tags can catch on jewellery or clothes and even be shaved in error. When damaged, skin tags can become inflamed, sore and may even bleed.
Skin tags images will often show how skin tags can be particularly unsightly on the face. They affect our appearance and make us rather self conscious. Women in particular will want to remove them for cosmetic reasons.
Although it is not necessary to remove skin tags for health reasons, most people dislike having skin tags because they affect their appearance and make them feel that these skin tags are a sign of middle or old age.
As they do grow older, both men and women have enough other ailments to remind them of this without having to put up with something that can be eradicated.
The skin tag is a tumor in the sense that it is a growth. But from the skin tag photos, it is easy to see that the skin tag is quite a distinctive looking growth and is not likely to be confused with anything more sinister. It is benign – this means that it is harmless and not malignant. In medical terms, skin tags are described as acrochordons, papillomas, soft fibromas, pedunculated (this means they are on a stalk) and filiform (this means they are thread-like).
