In brief: Skin tags

Skin tags (acrochordons) are benign skin growths that are somewhat familial (genetic) and tend to occur in skin folds.
We see more as people age and, naturally, in overweight people because of the skin folds. Problematic ones are treated with simple excision under local anesthesia.
