Acrochordon: A small tag of skin that may have a stalk (a peduncle). An acrochordon may appear on skin anywhere although the favorite locales are the eyelids, neck, armpits (axillae), upper chest, and groin.
Treatment may be done by freezing with liquid nitrogen or by cutting off with a scalpel or scissors if the acrochordon is irritating or cosmetically unwanted.
The term "acrochordon" is from the Greek "acro-" (which means top, summit, extreme, or refers to an arm or leg) + "chorde", string. Medically, an acrochordon is also called a cutaneous papilloma. It is far better known as a skin tag.
