What Is A Skin Tag?
A skin tag, acrochordon, or soft fibroma is a common noncancerous, painless skin growth (benign tumor) that is loosely suspended by a short, thin stalk called a “peduncle.” It contains blood vessels and collagen tissue.
Skin tags typically occur among skin folds including, armpits, under the breasts, neck, eyelids, and groin. They can be either smooth or irregular.
Although skin tags are harmless, they can be irritating and not aesthetically desirable. This is why Lumiskins provides you with safe, noninvasive procedures to remove skin tags in Toronto and help you regain your natural and desirable looks.
What Causes Skin Tag?
The exact cause of skin tags is unknown. However, several predisposing factors increase the risk of acquiring skin tags. They include:
- Age– skin tags are more common as people age. They are more common in middle-aged people and tend to increase with age. They are rare in children and infants, but they can occur around the neck area or underarm due to rubbing of the skin.
- Pregnancy– Pregnant women have high levels of hormones and gain weight, which increases skin tag occurrence. Numerous skin tags in pregnant women, rarely, can be a sign of an endocrine problem or hormonal imbalance.
- Weight– skin tags are more common in overweight or obese people. They are usually present in large numbers.
- Family history– if you have several family members who have skin tags, then you’re at a higher risk of getting one
- Underlying Conditions– According to research, certain diseases such as HPV and insulin resistance increase the risk of acquiring skin tags. A study done in 2010 using 37 skin tags from different parts of the body found that almost 50 perfect of these tags had HPV DNA in them.
- Genetic mutation– skin tags can also be rarely linked to rare genetic conditions, including Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) and Polycystic ovary syndrome.
Note: If you have a skin growth that itches, bleeds or keeps changing color, get in touch with your doctor immediately. It may be a sign of a severe condition, including skin cancer.
