Skin cysts

What is a cyst?

Cysts are most commonly slow-growing fluid-filled pockets of tissue that appear as lumps beneath the surface of the skin. Sometimes they can contain pus or other materials. They can appear anywhere on the body and often feel like a small smooth growth beneath the skin’s surface.

What should I do if I have a cyst?

Most cysts are benign and painless can be left alone once checked unless they cause the individual distress or they become infected or rupture.

However, if you notice a lump like this and you aren’t sure what it is, it’s always the best idea to consult your GP for a diagnosis to make sure it’s okay to leave it.

Can I get a cyst removed?

There are several methods in which cysts can be treated and removed. At Snowberry Lane Clinic we use the process of Radio Surgery to remove cysts, which is a similar process for mole removal – read more here.

Radio Surgery is a technique that allows the surgeon to cut and cauterise at the same time, which means the process is quicker and cleaner minimising the risk of complications.

The removal of a cyst more often than not requires a few stitches, which will create a small scar, so it’s important to be aware of this before deciding to proceed with treatment.
