Brown sack-like growth
 
I have a question about a growth in my inner thigh thatís been there since I was about 12 years old (Iím 39 now).

It is a dark brown sack-like growth. Itís small; about the size of a pencil eraser. It hasnít caused me any trouble or changed size or shape in any noticeable amount, although it is in a hard-to-see place. About a year ago, I tried *****ing it with a pin hoping some fluid would drain out as with a pimple, and maybe it would dry up. All that came out was a very small amount of blood. It hurt to do this, although not as much as if I had poked my skin directly with the pin. It didnít shrink or dry up, although now (a year or so later), Iíve been getting some irritation when the edge of my briefs rub against that spot, which is what prompted me to ask about this.

Does anyone have a clue as to what this thing is, based on my description?

Hello,

Have you ever had it checked by your doctor or a dermatologist?
It could be a number of things (imo) Based on your description I
would not want to speculate BUT hopefully more replies will come.

Your description sounds a bit like you are describing a tag growth
but don't really know of course.

Keep us posted,

Janaly

I've never had it looked at since I've never really been concerned about it up to this point. I'm only asking here in case someone else may have had something similar and knew something about it.

I just tried looking up images of tag growths in google but didn't come up with anything.
