At Regency, we treat all lumps, bumps, and cysts. Lumps and bumps can be many different things, so if you have a lesion, we recommend visiting us so that we can evaluate and diagnose your condition. We perform biopsies and excisions in office to remove all growths.
What are cysts?
Cysts are common, benign, 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, occasionally they can grow and get infected causing pain, redness, and irritation at the site.
Initially, we will inject the cyst with intralesional steroids to shrink it. At times, the injection can eliminate the cyst entirely. If the cyst appears infected, then 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. At Regency Dermatology, we are committed to the most pain free procedures for our patients. If you have additional questions or are ready to schedule your appointment, please contact us.
