A cyst is a closed capsule or sac-like structure, usually filled with liquid, semisolid, or gaseous material. Cysts usually occur within almost any type of the body’s tissue; they vary in size from microscopic to large structures that can displace internal organs. Although cysts can also refer to any normal bag or sac formation in the body, in this article, we will use the definition stated above and consider it to be an abnormal formation. Consequently, the cysts discussed below are not normal parts of the body. They have distinct membranes or cyst walls. If the sac is filled with pus, it is usually considered an abscess, not a cyst.
This might be because of infection, because the cyst gets in the way of normal actions, or because it is in a prominent location.
Cyst removal at a doctor’s office involves:
A local anesthetic to numb the area
Antiseptic procedures to avoid creating or spreading infection by preparing the skin area, and using a drape and sterile kit
Using a blade and other instruments to cut the cyst out
If a cyst has burst or there is an infection under the skin, the doctor may need to lance and drain it. A course of antibiotics may also be needed.
Tiny cysts can also be treated by lancing and draining.
Doctors removing a cyst will aim to remove it completely. If part of the sac wall is left behind, the cyst may form again.
Removing a cyst can leave a small scar. Cysts that do not cause any problems can safely be left alone without treatment.
Doctors are advised not to excise a cyst while it is inflamed, but to wait 4 weeks. During this time, it may resolve on its own.
