Cyst Removal – Noor Al Wasl Clinic

Introduction

A cyst removal procedure is generally very straight forward as most types of cysts are benign.

A cyst is a lump found anywhere on your body or under the skin. It can contain fluid, air, fat and other elements and comes in many different types.

Cysts can be formed for a few reasons such as the side effect of an infection, inherited diseases, inflammation and blockages in ducts under the skin.

Types Of Cysts

Different types of cysts include:

  • Epidermoid Cyst
    These are small lumps found under the skin and usually caused by an issue emanating from a hair follicle.
  • Sebaceous Cyst
    A sebaceous cyst is often formed within the sebaceous glands (hence the name) and is caused by a blockage in the glands that produce oil for the skin and hair.
  • Breast Cyst
    This is where fluids collect near the breast glands due to a blockage inside the breast. These are normally benign but should be checked as soon as possible.
  • Ganglion Cyst
    These kinds of cysts normally form near areas of joints in wrists, hands, feet or ankle areas.
  • Pilar Cyst
    These can grow to a large size, are generally benign but can be uncomfortable.
  • Mucous Cyst
    These are fluid-filled lumps that form on the lips or around the area of the mouth when the salivary glands get plugged.
  • and others
