There are many different types of benign skin lesions. The most common are skin tags, also known as acrochorda (dermatology). They are bits of benign skin growth that hang from the surrounding skin by a narrow stalk. Skin tags can be smooth or wrinkled, flesh colored or slightly brown, and usually irregular in shape.
Skin tags may appear on any part of the human body. They are more often found on the neck, armpits, eyelids, under the breasts, and other areas where skin frequently rubs against skin or clothing. If a skin tag is irritating or cosmetically unwanted, it can be removed through one of these most common methods: freezing, burning, or cutting. In some cases more than one treatment is required to remove them completely.
