i've had it for a few years and thought nothing of it until a family member pointed it out, it is raised and not a mole, but a weird growth, like a small balloon attached to the skin, it is soft and bright pink, it is not painful and not so big as to be noticeable enough for me to worry, but big enough for others to see, what could it be? i have searched for it and cant find anything similar, should i be worried?
Get it checked. Anytime you have a growth especially if others can see it, it needs investigation. It could be a skin tag or the start of a mole. I've had several removed, most just being frozen off, 2 others needed surgery. I had a pinkish raised lump...very small on my chest for many years and the Dermo Dr. just snipped it off in the office as it was a skin tag.
Better safe then sorry..good luck...JJ...

From what you describe, it kind of sounds like a skin tag. If that is what it is, it is not harmful but can be annoying if it is on a spot that might be rubbed by a waistband. Normally, a doctor or dermatologist will freeze them off. They are not cancerous and usually not something to worry about. Quite a few people get them as they age.
However, I am not a medical professional, and if this is something that is truly bothering you, then seek out the advice of your doctor.
