There's nothing of concern in any photo or video.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Did you see the skin tag photos? Before in may 2016, and yesterday? I seriously forgot about that for like a year..

I saw everything you posted.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
no concern? Macroed especially for you too.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I just didn't know skin tags like that grew. Even if by a little.

"There's nothing of concern in any photo or video." (timestamped 18/06/2017 07:01)

Yes, skin tags can continue to grow.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
But does it look like a skin tag to you though? Or really because it doesn't matter and I and my OCD can say "yay"?

Yes, it was consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma (skin tag). It can be ignored.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
You said it "was" consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma. Is it STILL consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma?

It is consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Yay!!!!!

Normal poop

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
to confirm, when you said it "was" consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma, you really meant it IS consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma. Or did you mean both? (As in it has always been and still is). Just want to make sure! :) hope this doesn't annoy you!

Yes, both.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Great. So to close off this skin tag - before I forget about it again.Please confirm:1. This skin tag that I've identified on his lip of focus IS, AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN consistent with a fibrovascular papilloma.
2. This fibrovascular papilloma IS, AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN of NO CONCERN.
3. I can and should forget about/ignore this fibrovascular papilloma.

1. Throat check. Please examine carefully. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0rGoQqVxGkfWo8
2. Back of mouth check. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0rJ8wyRQGqGHqq

5. Tongue underside 360 degrees. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0r54BKK5ngZBq
6. Upper inner lip check. Attached photo circled is a raise or seems like it but upon further examination seems like part of oral mucosa. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0rJOJ6XHGrtD5U
7. Bottom inner lip check. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0r5EZ9tNGJ1rcn
8. Right side inner lip flap check. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0rGnl3l8GQO15S
9. Left side inner lip flap check. Much more detailed photos due to the pigment to ensure tissue is healthy. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0r50tQOiGEDoQQ

There's nothing of concern in these photos. The circled raise is mirrored throughout the area and should be considered normal anatomy.

Like all through the left and right side of his entire inner upper front lip?

Correct
