Lumps, bumps, and cysts
We treat all types of lumps, bumps, and cysts at Regency. Lumps and bumps can be many different things, and we perform biopsies and excisions in office to remove all growths. Cysts are common, non-cancerous, sac-like growths which may be filled with a semi-solid or liquid-like material. These growths may remain the same size over time; however, they may occasionally grow and become infected. This can cause pain, redness, and irritation. Treatment for a cyst may include injection with intralesional steroids in an attempt to shrink it. If the cyst appears infected, a course of oral antibiotics will be prescribed. Definitive treatment for cysts is an excision, which we perform in office under local anesthesia. All excisions are sent to pathology to ensure benign nature of the cyst.
