Skin Tags
I have some skin tags on my upper trunk that seem to be getting darker now that I'm entering the menopause. Should I have them removed.

Dear Lisa,
Skin tags are not usually cancerous but any skin lesion that changes colour, shape or start itching or being painful needs to be looked at. Ask your Gp to examine the skin tags and remove them if he/she feels that it is necessary.
