What is a


A cyst is a sac-like pocket or lump that can form within or on the body, typically filled with fluid, semi-solid material, or gas. These cysts can develop in various tissues, including the skin, organs, and bones. Skin cysts are often benign and can vary in size, shape, and appearance. They can be caused by a variety of factors, such as infection, clogged hair follicles, or genetic predisposition. While most cysts are harmless, some may become painful, infected, or require medical attention for removal.

Treatment Options


There are several treatment options available for a cyst removal, and we will recommend the best approach based on the type and severity of your symptoms.

Excision: A surgical procedure in which the cyst is removed completely along with its sac. This is usually done under local anesthesia and can result in minimal scarring.

: A procedure in which the contents of the cyst are drained using a needle or a small incision. This can be done under local anesthesia, but the cyst may reform if the sac is not completely removed.

Injection Therapy:: A steroid injection can be used to shrink a cyst and reduce inflammation. This is typically done for smaller cysts that do not require surgery.

Laser Therapy: A laser can be used to vaporize the cyst, which is then absorbed by the body. This is typically done for smaller cysts and can result in minimal scarring.

Topical Medications: Prescription creams or gels containing retinoids, salicylic acid, or benzoyl peroxide can be used to reduce inflammation and help dissolve the cyst.

It's important to note that not all cysts require treatment, and some may go away on their own. However, if a cyst is causing discomfort, affecting your appearance, or getting in the way of your daily life, it may be time to consider treatment.

I’ve struggled with eczema all my life and the various amounts of creams/ointments given to me by other places never helped enough. Dr.Patel is the only dermatologist I have met that explained everything to me clearly so I understood my issue clearly and gave me other options. My hands have never looked so clear in my life. Super happy with his service and his whole office is very nice/professional. Highly recommend!

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and helpful. First time I went in he spotted my problem just by looking and immediately assigned me treatment. After following his regiment for a couple of months, it has completely healed. He also was able to check several other areas and prescribed medications for those areas. I highly recommend.

I started suffering from hormonal acne last October and visited many different dermatologists to find a sustainable solution. Dr. Patel is the only doctor who was committed to healing my skin. He saw me every 2 weeks to monitor my treatment and had effectively cleared my skin since I began seeing him in February! I am extremely grateful for him and his entire practice.

I am very happy I found Dr. Patel he knew right away my hair loss issue, diagnosed it and began the treatment regiment. He is so knowledgeable and takes good care of you. I’ve seen rapid results in just 2 visits.The front desk staff are courteous and professional as well, and the wait times are very minimal. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Patel for your all your skin concerns, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Patel is amazing. Not only is he great, but he will resolve any issues presented to him. I first came to see him for some skin tags and moles I wanted to remove, which he did. Also, I brought in my mother who was suffering from furuncle … something i’ve never heard from, but Dr. Patel recommended some medicine and my mom skin has cleared up 100%. I love his extreme intelligence and ambition to help with any dermatology issue. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone dealing with any skin issue.
