A hangnail is a piece of skin at the edge of the nail.

Are They Common?

No. If you have one, you should be ashamed.

Is It the Same Thing as the Game Hangman?

It is. To this day hangnail remains the world's favorite word game played on paper.

Should I Rip It Off?

Yes, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends it. If you're lucky, you'll rip off your entire skin layer.[1]
