Cyst doctors are experts in cyst removal treatments. Patients who have relatively smaller cysts up to 5 CM are advised to undergo local anesthesia during the cyst removal process. Extensive surgery may be needed for more complex cyst cases. Dr. Dasari performs cyst removal surgery in Las Vegas and is affiliated with Desert Springs Hospital, Spring Valley Hospital, Valley View Surgery Center, and Flamingo Surgery Center to provide his patients the best inpatient and outpatient surgical care near them.
Sacs of fluid, air, or any other material are called cysts. They can appear anywhere on the body on your skin. In cases where the sac is visible on the skin, the patient should consult a cyst doctor to rule out any signs of malignancy. A Las Vegas cyst doctor can analyze the cyst and recommend the right treatment plan for you.
Epidermoid (Inclusion) Cyst: A creamy white, foul-smelling discharge, made up of dead skin cells, develops as a result of keratin under the skin. These types of inclusion cysts can cause plenty of pain and redness if infected. They can appear on your back, face, arms, neck, and legs.
Sebaceous Cyst: If there is an inward growth in the follicle it can create pores on the back, face, scalp, and on the armpits. A surgical treatment may be prescribed by the cyst doctor.
Pilonidal Cyst: They develop close to the upper gluteal cleft. Because of its recurring nature, these cysts can become infected over time. To avoid infections and pain, the removal of hair and the cyst wall is important. A skin flap is used by the cyst doctor to cover the wound after the surgical process.
Breast Cyst: Cysts which appear on the breasts should not be taken lightly. It is important to treat them as soon as possible, as there may be a chance of malignancy. An ultrasound or MRI is mostly used to detect smaller cysts on the breast, however, cysts that are larger may require removal for a more in-depth analysis by a pathology lab. It is extremely important to evaluate such cysts as they can be cancerous.
Ganglion Cyst: These are cysts made up of sacs filled with fluid. They are only visible once they appear around feet, wrist, ankles, elbows, knees, or joints of hands. They mostly occur after an injury or constant pressure
For all these different types of cysts, a surgical treatment may be prescribed by Dr. Dasari. By the use of local anesthesia, Dr. Dasari numbs the affected area, makes a small cut, and pulls the cyst out. These surgeries can leave a scar on the person’s skin. The size of the scar depends on the size of the cyst, which is being extracted.
