Have you noticed a small bump underneath your skin that feels like a ball? You may be dealing with a cyst. A dermatologist can help you remove this bump so you can feel better. If you live in Gwinnett County, cyst removal services from Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville can help you improve your overall health.

What is a Cyst?

A cyst is a non-cancerous lump under the skin formed by fibrous tissues and fluid. These masses can cause redness and inflammation. Cysts can occur when oil secretion, dead skin cells or hair follicles become trapped in pores. There are many types of cysts that can occur anywhere on the body and vary in size. Individuals may be tempted to pop these bumps, but doing so can lead to potential skin infections.

Cyst Risk Factors

Certain factors can put individuals in Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County at higher risk for developing cysts. These risk factors include a history of acne, excessive sun exposure, skin injuries, parasites, infections and chronic inflammatory conditions. A family history of cysts can also play a significant role.

Lawrenceville Cyst Removal Surgery

Cysts can typically fade away without treatment after a few months, but may return. Professional treatment is necessary before the cyst ruptures. If a rupture occurs, scar tissue may be left behind that makes future medical treatment challenging. The most common treatment for cysts is outpatient surgical removal. A consultation with a Lawrenceville dermatologist in Gwinnett County can help determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs.

During cyst removal surgery, a dermatologist will cut open the bump to drain trapped fluid and bacteria. The surrounding sack is also removed to prevent future growths from developing. The area is then stitched and allowed to heal. The procedure can take less than an hour to perform, and you may resume normal activities right away.

While harmless, cysts can be uncomfortable and a source of embarrassment on noticeable areas of the body. Gwinnett County residents are able to receive comprehensive and personalized treatment plans for cyst removal at Medical Dermatology Specialists in Lawrenceville.

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems.
