Picture of Skin Tags
Skin tag: A small tag of skin that may have a stalk (a peduncle). Skin tags may appear on the skin almost anywhere although the favorite locales are the eyelids, neck, armpits (axillae), upper chest, and groin.
Invariably benign, this tiny tumor of the skin usually causes no symptoms unless repeatedly irritated as, for example, by the collar.
Medically, a skin tag can be termed an acrochordon or a cutaneous papilloma. But it is far better known as a skin tag.
