Understanding Removal Options for Cysts and Lipomas

Cysts and lipomas are benign growths that are mostly harmless. Some cysts can rupture and become inflamed, lipomas can be painful, and both can be unsightly and embarrassing. At Rodgers Dermatology, we are experts at safe, effective surgical removal of these common growths. Schedule consultation today.

Cyst Removal

In addition to moles, cysts are some of the most common conditions treated by dermatologists. Cysts are benign growths that sprout from the hair follicle and can enlarge to cause unsightly lumps and bumps on the skin. Cysts generally do not require any treatment, but if they are bothersome or have an undesirable appearance, they can usually be safely and easily removed in the office. There are two basic options to remove cysts: including incision and drainage (I&D) and excision. The method depends on several factors, including size, location, and prior treatments.
