Skin tags are growths on the skin.

Often, the tag will have a narrow stalk (which is called a peduncle). Skin tags are usually small. Sometimes, however, they can grow to up to half an inch (or more) in diameter.

At our IPSA Medical clinic, our doctors will examine your skin tag/s. This is to confirm that no underlying issues are present. During the consultation, you will be advised on the best course of action to take. If the skin tag is causing problems, then we may suggest removing it.

Skin tags can have slightly different forms. Their appearance can be either smooth or irregular. The tag is usually either flesh-coloured or has a slight brownish colour.
