Common at 47: Skin tags typically occur where skin rubs skin...Under the breasts, around the neck, under the arms, in the groin.... Their frequency increases as we age and some people have a genetic predisposition to them.

Abnormal: Skin tags are also known as acrochordon, and have a questionable etiology. They are easily removed surgically and will not return. They are often correlated with aging, and are noted on neck skin, and around eyelids. They are benign growths but often become irritated or infected from local trauma.
