What Do Skin Tags Look Like?

Skin tags are benign growths that typically appear on the skin that are usually small, soft, flesh-colored growths that hang off the skin. They can be smooth or slightly wrinkled and vary in size from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. They can also vary in color, from flesh-colored to marginally darker. They may be round or irregular in shape and typically have a small stalk or stem called a peduncle that attaches them to the skin. They are usually not painful, but they can be uncomfortable if they grow in an area where they are easily irritated or caught on clothing or jewelry.

Where Do Skin Tags Occur

Skin tags commonly appear along the neckline, under the arms, beneath the breasts, on the eyelids, and even in the groin, including the vagina and anus. The most common place is the armpit and when they are in awkward areas, skin tags can catch on jewelry or clothes and even be shaved in error. Skin tags can become inflamed, sore, and even bleed when damaged.

Skin tag pictures show these fleshy-colored growths on a small stalk that protrudes from the skin. They affect our appearance and make us somewhat self-conscious. Skin tag images often show how skin tags can be particularly unsightly on the face. 

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 grow older, both men and women have enough other ailments to remind them of this without putting up with something that can be eradicated.

Can Tumors Look Like Skin Tags?

The skin tags are considered tumors because they are an overgrowth of skin cells, but they are not malignant or not cancerous. 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. 

Skin Tags Medical Term

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).
