A cyst doctor performs cyst removal treatments. After a thorough examination and assessment of the cyst, the cyst doctor determines the required treatment for the patient who has the cyst. Smaller cysts which are around 5 cm are extracted and removed. However, larger cysts are removed and then sent for pathological evaluation. Dr. Dasari performs cyst removal treatments in Boulder City. He is affiliated with Boulder City Hospital to provide his patients top inpatient and outpatient surgical care closest to them.
A person commonly feels a cyst when it appears on the skin. At the onset of a cyst, it’s best to be evaluated by a cyst doctor so that chances of the cyst being cancerous can be ruled out.
Epidermoid (Inclusion) Cyst: As keratin is accumulated under skin, white and creamy discharge is produced. That makes up what is an inclusion cyst. The discharge gives a foul odor. The size of the inclusion cyst can be up to 18 Cm. Once infected, such cysts turn red and can become very painful. They’re mostly seen on the face, neck, back, arms and legs.
Sebaceous Cyst: These are caused as a result of the inward growth of hair follicles. They create sebum filled pores on the face, armpits, scalp, and the back. Surgery is required in case the sebaceous cyst becomes larger or infected.
Pilonidal Cyst: Developed close to the upper gluteal cleft, a pilonidal cyst is one that reoccurs and becomes infected too. A cyst doctor suggests the removal of the hair and the cyst wall to avoid infections and complications.
Breast Cyst: Cysts in the breast need to be checked immediately. A doctor checks MRI or ultrasound reports for smaller cysts and for the larger cysts. Removal may be essential. Only after removing the cyst, can it be assessed at a pathology lab. Make sure you consult a cyst doctor as soon as you feel or observe a cyst in the breast.
Ganglion Cyst: These are again cysts that are filled with fluid. Generally, they occur close to the joints of the wrist, hands, elbows, knees, or ankles. They are mostly a result of an impact or an injury.
Dr. Dasari may prescribe the removal and extraction of a cyst. At first, the patient is given local anesthesia. Then, a small cut is made to remove the cyst. The size of the scar typically depends on the cyst size.
