What Is A Cyst?
Cysts are a common occurrence among patients, and most of the time, they are noncancerous (benign). They show up as sac-like cavities that are typically filled with dead skin. Cysts can occur anywhere within the body and in all sizes and shapes, feeling something like a pea-sized lesion under the skin. They may develop as a result of clogged pores or hair follicles. Although most cysts do not cause pain or harm, some can grow to become troublesome for individuals. Cysts that are larger in size usually are eliminated and sent for biopsy to be certain they are in fact benign. Our Midland, TX dermatology practice, Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, treats various kinds of cysts and can provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment strategy according to your medical requirements and history.
How Do You Identify and Treat A Cyst?
Cysts are commonly identified by the bulge they create under the skin. A cyst may manifest with no pain or noticeable symptoms, or it may feel uncomfortable, especially if it is inflamed or ruptures and becomes infected. You may also notice harder, rougher skin around the area of the growth. Larger cysts may cause the organs to shift or create some kind of physical disfigurement.
There are many treatment options to eliminate a cyst once it has been identified. At Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a common treatment involves draining the growth and removing it with surgery. If a cyst is inflamed, a cortisone injection may be recommended to help shrink the growth. Once removed, the cyst may be sent for a biopsy to confirm whether or not it is benign.
