Cysts are benign skin lesions which, although sometimes irritating or unsightly, are not usually dangerous. Many benign lesions do not require treatment except for cosmetic reasons. Some, however, may itch, burn, sting, or be otherwise uncomfortable if left untreated and some may lead to possibly malignant changes in the skin.
Your provider at AllPhases Dermatology will tailor treatment to you. Potential treatments include:
- Aspiration under local anesthetic
- Surgical excision
