I realize i have a hemorrhoid skin tags near my anal, it itches sometime and it makes me scared. Will it go away on its own without surgery?

Im just worried will the anal skin tag cause me any sickness in health? Can i just leave it without doing any surgery?

Leave it alone: If you have constipation, take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water so that your urine is colorless. The skin tag is of no consequence. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Evaluation Is Needed: I needs to be evaluated, in person, preferably by the same physician who saw the previous lesions. In the meantime, take a picture of it with a ruler so you can readily show your surgeon how it is progressing. Hope you feel well, soon. ...Read more

What is the surgical procedure for removing a sebaceous cyst and skin tag?

Incision/hypercation: Sebaceous cysts are nasty. They need to be cut out and the 'coating' around them needs to be carefully removed or it will return. Skin tags are easy. They can be scrapped off, cyrofreezed off with liquid nitrogen or burned off with an electrical current. ...Read more
