About Epidermoid Cysts

Epidermoid cysts are small, non-cancerous, movable lumps that develop beneath the skin. They are often slow growing and painless. Epidermoid cysts, also known as Epidermal Inclusion cysts, are the most common cysts that develop in the skin tissue.  Although they can develop in any skin surface of the body, these are most commonly found in the scalp, face, neck, and trunk region. Top epidermoid cyst removal specialist, Dr. Chanu Dasari can promptly diagnose epidermoid cysts and provide high quality minimally invasive treatments. Dr. Dasari is an accomplished surgeon in various treatments of epidermoid cysts, having performed several complex surgeries.

Signs & Symptoms of Epidermoid Cyst

As a small, few millimeters to few centimeters painless bump under the skin, you may not have any noticeable symptoms at first.

Common signs and symptoms of epidermoid cyst include:

  • Small, firm, round nodules under the skin, typically on the face, neck or trunk
  • Release of a yellowish foul smelling cheese-like substance
  • Tiny pinpoint blackhead at the opening of the cyst
  • Pain and tenderness with inflamed or infected cysts
  • Swelling and redness in the surrounding area
  • High Fever

When Is It Time to Visit an Epidermoid Cyst Specialist?

An epidermoid cyst develops as a benign, painless skin condition, but can rapidly become infected and painful. The cyst must be properly treated or surgically removed for relief of symptoms and prevention of infectious complications.

It is important to see an epidermoid cyst removal specialist straight away if you feel any of the following signs to avoid long-term serious complications.

  • Rapidly growing cyst
  • Grows into a painful swelling
  • Gets infected or ruptures with discharge of pus
  • Develops in a skin region that is persistently irritating
  • Causes cosmetic problems
  • A cyst in an uncommon location hindering activity, such as a hands, fingers and toes


Meanwhile refrain from squeezing or popping your cyst. Your doctor is able to take care of your cyst with the least risk of infection and scarring.

Options for Epidermoid Cyst Removal

The best treatment option for epidermoid cysts involves the removal of cyst with an excision or incision procedure, along with removal of cyst wall through a surgical opening. If the cyst wall remains intact, the cyst may recur. Minimally invasive surgery is recommended for reduced scarring.

Conservative. It involves injecting the epidermoid cyst with a medicine, Triamcinolone (a steroid) that provides symptomatic relief.

Incision and drainage. I&D may be performed if the cyst is inflamed. Your doctor will make a small cut in the cyst and softly squeeze out the cyst material.

Minimally invasive surgery. A surgical procedure is the radical treatment of these cysts with little to no chances of recurrence.
