While benign, cysts can look unsightly or become uncomfortable. You can develop cysts almost anywhere on or in your body, and only some will require treatment. If you want to get rid of cysts, see a dermatologist and have them removed safely.
What are Cysts?
“Cyst” is a general term that indicates a pocket full of fluid or other material. You can have cysts under your skin or inside your body, and most do not cause any harm. However, large or infected cysts may require treatment. If you have a cyst that bothers you, your Levy Dermatology provider has a range of treatments to help get rid of it. These cysts are usually:
- Any size
- Not painful unless infected
Cysts can become sore or irritated if they become inflamed or if their location causes friction. If you have a painful cyst, a dermatologist can usually give you relief with a minor procedure.
