A skin tag is a small (benign) tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) – they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Skin tags are also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, cutaneous tag, fibroepithelial polyp, fibroma molluscum, fibroma pendulum, soft fibroma, and Templeton skin tags.
