Cysts and other subcutaneous growths can be removed in the office as part of a normal surgery. A cyst is a closed sac beneath the skin that contains fluids and/or soft or hard material. Cysts can be found everywhere on the body. Although they are usually slow-growing, painless, and moveable lumps beneath the skin, they can occasionally become irritated and sensitive. If cyst removal is required or desired, treatment options include directly injecting steroid into the cyst, draining it, or surgically removing it. Laser surgery is also another possible option to remove cysts.
