Let us understand the different types of skin lesions which may possibly evolve on your skin, leaving you confused about what you should do about it! Skin tags, moles, and warts can be removed by skin care specialists. But before any medical intervention, one must always know the underlying causes and implications of the presence of skin tags or warts, or moles. And one of the most important things to understand about these growths is that it is extremely common in adults. Removing them is a complete self-opinion! Why should you not achieve that flawless look when you can!
Firstly, one must understand that there are different types of skin lesions. Some are benign, which means they are non-cancerous. Yet it can cause you discomfort or self-consciousness. If you are annoyed at your skin tags, moles, or warts, here are a few key points you must know.
Skin Tags: Skin tags are just a benign growth of the skin which is connected to the skin through a tiny base stalk. They appear to be hanging from the skin and are generally found on the regions which are more prone to friction, like the armpits, neck, body folds, or groin. Skin tags are not life-threatening at all! Skin tags appear to be hanging as an attachment to the skin. Skin tags are not found in babies during birth, but they tend to develop with age.
Moles are skin growths that are characterized by specific colors, such as black or brown. Moles can either grow in groups or be found alone. Development of moles is more frequent within the first quarter of life till 25. Some moles are left unchanged, while some may change color or gradually fade away. Mole growth occurs when cells outgrow in clusters and may even darken during pregnancy or exposure to the sun.
Warts are different from moles and skin tags when it comes to texture. Warts have a rough, corrugated texture that can evolve around the knees, hands, or even the bottom of the feet. Warts are contagious because they are caused by the viruses in the HPV (human papillomavirus) family. These viruses can spread if you have direct contact with the infector’s towel or physical contact. Warts usually lie deep in the skin. Warts are thick, scaly, and callus-like, lying underneath the tissues.
Skin tags are common in most adults. Studies have suggested that at least one in every 2 adults develops a skin tag in their lifetime. Skin tags do not affect your health in general. But they can make you self-conscious and lower your self-confidence because it is not very convenient to look at, especially if they crop up in areas around your face or neck. Since they are elevated from the base skin, concealing them under makeup is not a feasible option. Clients like to undergo the skin tag removal procedure, which is a minimally invasive treatment and is readily provided at our clinic. But before any permanent removal of the skin tag or mole, our clinical experts first examine the nature of the growth. It is possible, although rare, that it might be connected to some severe skin disease. So, our experts always undergo a thorough diagnosis for the same.
Moles occur when the cells in the skin tend to grow in a cluster instead of evenly distributing out over the entire skin. Moles contain pigmented cells called melanocytes which induce skin tone and color. As the skin starts to age, the moles are slightly elevated and may even change color. Some moles can be accompanied by slight hair growth on the site. While some moles simply disappear over time.
Warts are contagious and are caused due to direct contact with the infection. Warts should be immediately redressed. Otherwise, it may spread to others as well! Warts are colorless, and diagnostics are tougher than identifying a mole or skin tag.
