Effect of estrogen and progesterone on skin tags.
Skin tags (ST) are the most common fibroepithelial skin tumors. It is a middle-aged tumor. However, for women, 50 are considered a turning point in life and the development of skin tags will stop. An important event that occurs around this period of life is menopause / menopause. After menopause, estrogen receptor levels are significantly reduced. Estrogen receptors (ERs) and androgen receptors (ARs) are members of the steroid receptor gene superfamily. Estrogen receptor positivity has been demonstrated in most skin tumors by both histochemical and biochemical assays.Author(s): Emilia Johnson*
