Treatment for Cysts
Contact us for skin cyst removal by a professional dermatologist.
What is a Cyst?
A common skin issue for many people, cysts form from fibrous tissues and fluids under the skin. A round non-cancerous mass or lump, cysts can form on any part of your body. Also called a epidermal cyst, sebaceous cyst, and other names, they sometimes lead to inflammation, redness and tenderness.
How Cysts Form
Cysts are caused by dead skin and oily secretions that are trapped in a skin pore. Often forming where hair grows, they can also develop from swollen hair follicles. Overproduction of testosterone can also cause cysts.
Removal of Cysts Surgically
Skin cyst removal is a fairly simple surgical procedure. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area. The dermatologist will perform an excision to remove the entire cyst, so that blockages do not cause the cyst to return.
