Skin Tag Removal

Rockwell uses the safest and least invasive methods to remove penile skin tags and moles, such as excision, cryosurgery, and cauterization.

What are Genital Skin Tags?

Rockwell provides penile skin tag removal in Miami, FL. Penile skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are soft skin tissues that hang from a stalk on the penis. They usually form in areas where the skin rubs against other folds of skin or clothing. Skin tags affect approximately 60% of the population, and they’re usually benign with no long-term consequences. However, you may opt for genital skin tag removal if your skin tags and moles cause self-consciousness or physical discomfort.

Symptoms of Genital Skin Tags

  • The skin tag is connected to your skin by a small stalk.
  • You might experience mild itching, but there’s no bleeding.
  • Skin tags are the same color or slightly darker than the surrounding skin.
  • They range in size from 1–2 millimeters to 1-2 centimeters.
  • The skin tag may become inflamed due to constant friction.

Diagnosing Skin Tags

Penile skin tags and moles often look similar to genital warts, i.e., softs growths on the penis due to a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. As such, whenever you develop a new bump, mole, or skin tag, you must contact a doctor for a diagnosis. The doctor can usually determine if the skin tag is a simple cosmetic concern or a genital wart based on visual examination. After examining the skin tag, the doctor will recommend removal techniques.

Skin Tag & Mole Removal Techniques

  • Excision: The doctor will use a scalpel to cut away the skin tag and stalk.
  • Cryosurgery: The doctor will freeze the skin tag with liquid nitrogen for removal.
  • Cauterization: The doctor will use a cautery device to burn the skin tag off.
  • Ligation: The doctor will tie a wire around the base of the skin tag to block blood flow, making the skin tag die and fall off.
