    Skin tags are common, harmless growths that can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common in areas where there are folds in the skin.

    Usually benign, skin tags are often genetically programmed. If they’re in the wrong place or if there are too many, they can present some very real cosmetic concerns. Removal is a simple office procedure that causes little, if any, pain or complication when done by a physician using sterile scissors or by freezing (cryogenically), or by a combination of techniques. Smaller growths can be removed without the need for anesthesia; larger ones are numbed with a local anesthetic.

    Dr. Elaine Cook, a board-certified dermatologist and head of Advanced Skin Treatment Center, brings 29 years’ experience to diagnosing and treating skin conditions, both at her clinic and online at Any unusual moles, growths, pigmented spots and skin tags should be examined by a physician and annual checks should be part of your regular exam. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends monthly self-exams, as well. This includes diagnosing skin tags and moles.

    Moles come in three basic types – regular, irregular (atypical), and cancerous. Regular moles are usually symmetrical and are benign. Irregular moles usually are asymmetrical and can have irregular borders and colors. While they usually do not become cancerous themselves, they can indicate a greater than normal propensity for developing melanoma, a type of skin cancer, so they should be brought to a doctor’s attention and carefully watched or removed. Cancerous moles can only be diagnosed by a physician and need immediate attention. Skin cancers are usually curable if diagnosed and treated at an early stage.

    If you are concerned about any growths on your skin, consult a qualified professional like Dr. Elaine Cook at Advanced Skin Treatment Center. They can diagnose skin tags, moles, and other skin conditions and recommend the best treatment for you.
