Cysts are fluid-filled growths that arise in the dermis, the deepest layer of the skin, and are usually under 5 cm in size. While they’re rarely dangerous, cysts can be bothersome as they can grow and become red, irritated or even infected with time. The most troublesome are those that are noticeably firm and visible, on the scalp, face or body. If you have one on your face, it may be particularly troublesome because of how it negatively affects your appearance.

If you find a cyst, do not try to squeeze or rupture it. Many patients have tried this before coming to see us, making the cyst worse. It also often leads to further irritation and infection. Infection complicates the removal process.
Dr. Guirguis can help you successfully remove a cyst, quickly and permanently. The procedure is a simple treatment that safely removes your cyst(s), which can then be sent for pathology examination to ensure that it is not a more dangerous growth. Dr. Guirguis has treatd a number of cysts, including those that are epidermal, epidermoid and pilar, as well as the most common, sebaceous.
Most can be removed under local anesthesia. The process of removing a non cancerous growth, such as a cyst, takes 15 – 30 minutes and there is little to no downtime.
