Super stressed please advise

Hi, I have had this skin tag for a few years, always pink soft and stretchy. Has grown in last 2 years.

I notice today that it has changed colour ! It is on inner thigh and I don’t check it very often, so no idea when this change happened.

I am deeply stressed.

Not sure if I caught it, I don’t think, I did.

I have private healthcare, should I see them urgently, or can it wait till Monday.

Many thanks.

Re: Super stressed please advise

This looks like an irratated skin tag, but need to be sent for histology when removed to be sure.

You may like to call ahead to your insurance and your private doctor to see if you could have a slot where they are able to remove it for you when they see you.

I hope that helps

I wish you well with treatment
