Suggest treatment for skin tag on the side of the throat

Smoker. 43yr old female. Over six months ago noticed skin tag on the left side of my throat near tonsil. Left side of throat was swollen but not sore. Today notice white pimple type bump below this skin tag, same side and skin tag has appeared on the right side of throat now with no swelling. Throat is not red at all and no pain when swallowing. Should I be concerned?

Consult an ENT specialist and get evaluated.

It is better to remove it surgically as it might lead to recurrent infections.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
