Skin tags are extra-folds of anal tissue. They may develop from the stretched overlying skin of a thrombosed external hemorrhoid or the way in which the tissue in an anal fissure fails to heal properly. But the main impetus lies with some type of localized injury. Skin, and its healing capacity, has limitations, specifically as it relates to the anal region. Defecation and intercourse are high pressure actions that continuously irritate a wound, especially as it is attempting to close.

How should anal skin tags be removed?
Anal surgery is a treatment option for different diseases, including haemorrhoids, anal fistulas, anal fissures or anal cancer. The type of procedure depends on the respective disease. For example, haemorrhoids can be ablated, staunched, lifted or excised.
Skin tags are raised areas or bumps on the outer surface of the skin. Anal skin tags are common and while they might be sensitive, itchy, cause some discomfort, and make keeping clean more challenging, they are not usually painful. It can be distressing to find a lump or a bump in the perianal area or to have symptoms such as itching, but skin tags are benign not cancerous and typically small sometimes only a few millimeters. Skin tags may be caused by blood vessels in the anal area swelling under the skin and then reducing again.
