Removal of Moles & Tags
Different skin lesions or growths like moles and skin tags, which are otherwise harmless, can impact a person’s confidence. These can look ugly and out of place. Medically, tags are called acrochordon, and moles are called a melanocytic nevus. Moles are growths formed by clustered skin cells or melanocytes, while tags are tiny balloon-like structures, soft to touch. Both the lesions are common growths and are primarily benign. The good thing is that our medical professionals can remove moles and tags.
Both moles and tags have different causes.

Signs and Symptoms
The dermatologists are able to diagnose skin tags and mole by looking at them. In most cases people only require a visual exam. However, if doctor has any doubt, they may also perform a biopsy. A lab test and a particular tissue inspection are used to confirm the mole’s origin.

When you notice changes in a mole’s color, size, or shape, you must visit a dermatologist for evaluation. Also keep an eye if they bleed, ooze, itch, or become tender or painful.
Most moles are harmless and painless unless rubbed or they bump against something. Skin tags are also harmless, small, soft pieces of skin that hangs out. They mostly appear on the neck, upper trunk, armpits, and body folds.
Friction and rubbing may lead to the formation of a skin tag. Sometimes use of cheap alloy jewelry can also cause skin tag. If you are over the age of 50 or have diabetes, you are more prone to skin tags.
