Cysts are common, non-cancerous lumps that can be effectively treated by a dermatologist.
A cyst is a small, round, non-cancerous lump in the top layer of the skin that usually develops as a result of infection or clogging of sebaceous (oil) glands or hair follicles.
Cysts are common, and can occur almost anywhere on the body, but are most often found on the face, ears, back, or chest. Their texture and size can vary, but they’re often about the size of a pea and feel like soft blisters or hard lumps beneath the skin. While they are usually harmless, their appearance can be bothersome, and many patients opt for cyst removal.
Cysts are slow-growing, and usually do not cause pain unless they rupture or become infected or inflamed.
While you can’t stop a cyst from forming, you can help prevent rupture and infection by not squeezing or attempting to remove a cyst on your own. Skin Science Dermatology offers safe and effective options for cyst removal. A thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, a highly skilled dermatologist, will determine your best treatment options.
