Having moles, skin tags. A pebble on back, shoulder. What is it?

I am a 33 year old male. I have several different moles and some skin tags. There is one on my back/shoulder that looks like a black seed or pebble that was pressed into my skin. If you manipulate the skin around it, you can actually separate the surrounding skin a little away from it but it remains attached. Is this possibly a mole, or wart, or something else?

Thanks for writing to us.
From the description provided I could think if few possibilities. It could be seborrheic keratosis or a mole or wart. The diagnosis can only be confirmed after getting the lesion examined by a dermatologist. Treatment requires electro cautery of the lesion.
Hope that helped
Take care

Thanks for coming to HCM. As per your description, it is possibly a skin tag which is harmless & benign (non-cancerous).
You can get it evaluated by your local physician during your next visit.
Wish you good health.
