A skin tag, or acrochordon, is a common and benign polyp-shaped cutaneous tumoral growth. Skin tags are generally small, soft, pinkish or pigmented. These lesions are skin outgrowths that can measure less than 1 mm to more than 1 cm (rather rare). Though these occur particularly in major skin folds, they sometimes occur also on the eyelids. These are the skin tags treated in ophthalmology. They result from deregulated cell reproduction in hypertrophic sebaceous glands. When they cause irritation or become an esthetic issue, skin tags can be removed with a scalpel under local anesthesia.
