In brief: Skin tags
While skin tags are rarely malignant, you might decide to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or to reduce irritation if they are in an area where clothes or body parts rub against them. Everyday health (harvard health publications) outlines different removal procedures.
Once properly removed, skin tags rarely recur in the same site, but others might develop elsewhere.
