Growth on inside of upper thigh.

Has anyone ever seen a growth like this and if so what is your opinion?

Maybe it is a skin tag that is irritated. Is it soft and moveable? Is it in a place that gets friction (underarm?).

Yes it is in a place right near my crotch that get gets kind of hot and sweaty. It burn and sting quite a bit. I may just have it removed. Would a dermatologist do that? and what is a skin tag? is the same thing as a mole? Thank for your input.

Skin tags are very common and the groin is a common place to get them. They are not moles. I wouldn't bother getting it removed unless it is bothering you a lot but yes a dermatologist can remove them.
