Patients who typically look to have anal skin tag removal are all ages and men as well as women.

They have often seen their doctor or an NHS specialist (colorectal surgeon) and advised that is it all ok and deemed ‘cosmetic’  so they don’t then need to remove the anal skin tags on the NHS. For a lot of people who want them removed, they then try often counter remedies or search google for a DIY treatment which almost always ends up making things worse and we would strongly advise against any of these methods.

Patients who are keen to remove the anal skin tags should seek specialist advice.
