Skin Tags

Author: My Doctor - Kaiser Permanente

Let's look at another common growth called the "skin tag." Like SK's, skin tags increase in number with age. They are not cancerous and cannot be spread to others. Removal of skin tags is considered cosmetic unless they are infected or bleeding. Fortunately, skin tags rarely bleed or become infected. This is an example of a skin tag has dead tissue at its tip, has recently bled and would be removed in the Medical Dermatology Clinic. Removal of infected skin tags is a covered benefit under your Health Plan. Here in the skin folds, there are many tags.

They are flesh colored and if you pull on one, you will see that it is connected to the skin by a thin stalk. If you think you have skin tags, or have been diagnosed with skin tags that are not infected, their removal would not be covered as a Health Plan benefit. If you would like these removed, please contact your nearest Kaiser Permanente Dermatology Cosmetic Clinic, where you can be treated on a fee-for-service basis.
