Excess Skin Growth On The Neck?

Postby Kennard » Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:11 pm

i was born with excess skin on the back of my neck (it was flat and barely visible) like a skin tag. Since then, it has grown larger and gotten darker. I had it checked when I was 7 (I am 14 now) and they said there wasn't any sign of cancer then (Alot can change in 7 years). Since then, they have gotten even bigger. I am just getting a little worried. I Googled it and I got 5 options: Warts (cause by a virus, so no.), Cyst (it doesn't look like one), Acrochrodon (not there at birth nor does it get bigger, so no.) Skin cancer..., and Tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils, so no.)

I am trying hard not to jump to conclusions. So, please please help me figure what it is. Please.

If it grows and grows I would see an dermatologist for it and tell him that you want him to remove it. Maybe it's nothing really to worry about, but you always think of it and that effects your living.

And sure there can be a lot of change in 7 years, so it might be real good to talk to him..
