Here is a list of our Frequently Asked Questions. If you have any other questions or concerns, our experts will provide you will all the information you need.
What Do Skin Tags Look Like?
Skin tags are small flaps of skin, ranging from the size of a small pen head to 3 cm. They form when a small bump or gland sticks up from the skin. That bump is then rubbed, typically under the arms, in the groin, or around the neck. Because of friction, the flap rises more and can form into a ball shape.
Should You Have A Wart Removed?
Although we recommend removing any of these spots, warts especially need to be removed quickly (before you pass the virus along to someone else). But when people try to treat them at home, they never seem to get better. Why? They’re a virus that lives in the skin cells. If you don’t get rid of the virus, you won’t get rid of the wart. So you have to treat it long enough to kill all the skin cells that contain the virus.
Should You Have A Skin Tag Removed?
The biggest problem with skin tags is the irritation they cause. They can snag, bleed, and hurt. In general, they are just bothersome. Although they are not dangerous, when skin tags become painful, tender, or unsightly, many patients ask to get them removed.
What Do Moles Look Like?
To see a visual difference between wart and mole bumps, look for pigment and hair. Warts don’t have either, but moles have both. Because of their pigment, they have the rare potential to change from a regular mole into skin cancer.
Some people are predisposed to develop moles, and sun exposure stimulates them. So, if you notice these small benign growths pop up easily on your skin, take extra precautions in the sun to prevent more from forming.
What Causes Warts?
Warts start from a virus. And like all viruses, they’re contagious. So, when you see a wart pop up, that means you came into contact with someone else with a wart virus, whether through shaking hands or using the same hand towel.
Will Skin Tags, Moles, and Warts Go Away on Their Own?
No, these spots do not go away on their own. So, whether you have a mole, wart, or skin tag, a certified medical professional can give you the most accurate identification and help you decide if the growth should be removed.
