Skin Tags: Should They Be Removed?
A friend of mine has a history of basal cell carcinoma (a benign type of skin cancer), and recently we were discussing skin protection from the sun. We then began discussing what types of skin surface abnormalities should be checked by a doctor, and which ones are very common and are in general, not a concern.
The discussion boiled down to: how does she (or for that matter you as a viewer), determine whether it is a mole, actinic keratosis,or skin tag? And what types of skin abnormalities should you be concerned about?
