Skin growths are a lump or protrusion of tissue on the top layer of skin, most commonly diagnosed as a mole, wart, or skin tag. Although they are most often benign and painless, some patients are bothered by their appearance. Our doctors specialize in identifying and removing skin growths through a variety of treatment options.
Skin tags, or acrochordons, are growths that occur when the body produces excess cells in the top layer of skin. They tend to be the same color as the surrounding skin and are estimated to affect more than half of all American adults.
Although they can be unattractive, they have no effect on your overall health. Skin tags can be removed with liquid nitrogen, heat, or through excision by our board-certified dermatologists.
