Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cyst?

Cysts are a common skin condition characterized by the development of a small pocket of fluid or keratin substance under your skin. You may form a cyst after an injury or from a clogged or malformed oil gland. Cysts also form around foreign objects.

How do I know if I have a cyst?

Cysts aren’t usually painful, but you may be able to identify a cyst by touch. They usually feel like a firm, smooth pea that easily rolls under your skin.

Although cysts are benign, they can become inflamed or rupture. This can be a risk for infection, and you should have your cyst evaluated and treated by the skin experts at Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery especially if it suddenly becomes painful or increases in size.

What can I expect during removal of a cyst?

Removal of a cyst requires full removal of the entire cyst capsule. Although a cyst can be drained, it will come back if the capsule isn’t removed.

Before removing your cyst, the team injects a numbing agent in the area to ease any discomfort. The dermatologist then opens your skin with a surgical blade and removes the entire cyst through the opening. As skilled surgeons, the team at Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery use only small incisions when removing a cyst to minimize scarring.

After removing the cyst, the dermatologist closes the opening with stitches and sends the cyst to the lab to be examined and evaluated to ensure that it’s a benign cyst.
Procedure time may vary depending on the location of your cyst but may take about 30 minutes to remove your cyst.
