Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
This is most likely exactly what you said it is, a skin tag
but the bruise looks like a melanoma
It may also be dead tissue that is a result of trauma that occurred without his knowledge
it surrounds the skin tag in a jagged circular shape
Have you seen melanoma before?
yes my mother died of it
very dark blackish/redish looks like a bruise but isn't sore
Okay, then you may watch and wait for another week, there is no urgency before then, it may disappear prior to that
okay. that's what i was thinking...watch it and see if it starts to look like a healing bruise all gross and yellowish and such and if that doesn't happen, he should go to the dermatology clinic?
yes, after that he should go to the dermatology clinic
ok. thank you
You're very welcome
