Cysts are sac-like structures or closed capsules that are filled with semi-solid, gaseous, or liquid structures. They are similar to blisters. They often occur within tissues underlying the skin. For this reason, they affect any part of the human body. Their sizes can vary from microscopic to small balls.
At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we treat multiple medical dermatological conditions, including various types of cysts. To have your skin condition properly diagnosed and treated by our team of experts, contact us today!
Treatment of Cysts
Depending on the type of cyst located on your body and whether there are any underlying medical conditions present, the technique used to drain or remove the cyst may vary. For cysts that are located on the scalp or other areas where hair is present, no shaving is required. During your consultation, our experienced medical team will thoroughly evaluate your skin, medical history, and more to determine the best diagnosis and the most effective way to move forward with your treatment. Although cysts are commonly harmless, many men and women have them removed for aesthetic purposes. It is often advised to not try to drain cysts yourself as it can lead to infection or to the cyst redeveloping in the future.
