Cysts – Pittsburgh Effective Treatment Options
Cysts are bumps that can appear either on the surface of the skin or beneath it. Visible cysts can be dealt with using one of the following two methods: surgical removal and cyst drainage.
Surgical removal is an effective treatment that is often used to eliminate visible cysts, especially large ones that are causing issues. When there is a possibility that the cyst may be cancerous, a biopsy may be performed.
Cysts can also be drained of their fluid to collapse them. In order to drain a cyst, a needle is carefully inserted to aspirate the growth.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Ana Busquets, an experienced Pittsburgh practitioner, will be available to examine any visible cysts you may have and recommend treatment methods. Cysts that are not visible can also be dealt with. Contact us today to arrange an appointment for a consultation.
