Remove Lumps & Restore Healthy Skin
At Gavino Dermatology, we understand that cysts and lumps on the skin can be a nuisance. Lumps underneath the skin don’t always pose a threat, but they can eventually get infected, necessitating dermatological treatment. You can also consult a dermatologist to remove cysts if they interfere with your daily activities, such as wearing certain clothes, or cause self-consciousness. Through various treatments, such as surgical removal or topical creams, we effectively remove lumps and restore healthy skin.
What Are Cysts?
Cysts are non-cancerous lumps that can develop on the skin and be either fluid-filled or solid. They can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the face, scalp, ears, and back. They can range from as small as a pea to as large as a golf ball. Cysts can start as benign and painless, but if they become infected/inflamed, you need to contact a dermatologist immediately. Even if the cyst isn’t infected, it’s worth looking at.
Symptoms of Cysts:
- A small raised bump on the skin
- A lump that feels hard to the touch
- A lump that is mobile and can be moved around under the skin
- A lump that is painful or tender to the touch
- Redness or swelling around the lump
- A lump that is filled with fluid, pus, or blood
- A lump that causes discomfort while performing daily activities
- A lump that doesn’t go away after a long time
Cyst Treatment Options
Cysts can occur because of numerous underlying conditions, and they can also present different symptoms. Furthermore, some cysts are completely harmless, and some may display signs of inflammation and infections. Your dermatologist will carefully examine the cyst, look for signs and symptoms of infections, and curate a personalized treatment plan, which may include injections, antibiotics, drainage, or surgical excision.
