Alright, so let's start with
acrochordon, also called a skin tag.
These are very common, benign, skin-colored
polyps shown here on the right.
They're more common in elderly patients unlike our fairly
young patient and you'll often see them in the obese
and those with acanthosis nigricans
or folks with insulin resistance.
They're found in flexural creases like the axilla, the
flexural creases of the neck, occasionally in the groin.
Strictly speaking, our patient's
lesions are not in the groin creases.
They're on the shaft of the penis.
And moreover, our patient is not old or
obese so it really seems much less likely.
That being said, if this was acrochordons,
you treat them by simply snipping them off
if patients are particulary concerned about
them or you can use cryosurgery as well.
More often than not though, we just leave them alone.
