Hello,i am Dr. Aren,I have over 37 years of clinical experience,I will help with your query.Skin tags are known to develop as we age and by themselves are not suggestive of any serious disorder.The skin tags have a tendency of being sore or bleeding when rubbed hard against clothes or with other thigh.If the tag is independent,it can be easily removed/cauterised after local anaesthesia by your PCP/GP or surgeon.It is a simple procedure and your doctor can usually perform it himself or refer you to a surgeon.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It is still small tho
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 4 months ago

If it is not causing a problem and not growing in size,you can leave it in place.This can easily be excised /cauterised under local anaesthesia by a surgeon/Dermatologist .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
