Brief Answer:
Sebaceous or epidermoid cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have seen the attached image.

Your skin specialist is right. It is not a skin tag.

It appears to be a Sebaceous or an epidermoid cyst. Both of which are not serious but must be removed surgically.

Yes, you may have to consult a surgeon to get rid of the same.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
