What Is a Cyst?

Skin cysts are fluid-filled round lumps that form underneath the skin. They are common and mostly harmless. 

Cysts are generally either white or yellow and often have blackheads that can secrete pus. 

Additionally, the size of a cyst ranges heavily but can grow to the length of ten centimetres in diameter, which is about the length of an adult’s middle finger.

Cysts do not usually hurt but can become sore if infected.

Where Can Cysts Grow?

Simply put, cysts can manifest anywhere in the body. 

The most common cysts are epidermoid cysts (pilar cysts) and sebaceous cysts, forming on the skin’s surface. 

However, cysts can develop internally also, for example, dermoid cysts or ovarian cysts, which form in the ovaries, Bartholin cysts, which form inside female genitalia and thyroids cysts that manifest near your oesophagus.

What Is a Cyst Made Of?

A capsulated pocket comprises membranous tissue (layers of cells that allow for the flow of materials), which contains fluids (like keratin) and air. 

What Is Cyst Removal?

Cyst removal surgery is incredibly straightforward and usually occurs while you are under a local anaesthetic. 

Upon your arrival, our surgeon performs a diagnosis to identify the type of cyst you have and advises the best treatment. Based on the consultation results, if you qualify for cyst removal surgery, the procedure is as follows: 

Firstly, our expert surgeon will carefully disinfect the operating area around the cyst before using a surgical drape to maintain a sterile environment. 

After which, the surgeon will make a small incision on the cyst to allow it to drain completely.

If you have a more substantial cyst, the surgeon will excise the entire cyst itself.

Depending on the incision size , the surgeon may close the wound with stitching before wrapping it in a compression cloth to prevent any infection.

How Long Is Recovery From a Cyst Removal?

Despite cyst removal surgeries being outpatient visits, your discharge will be on the same day. 

If you work an office job, you will generally be able to return to work within the next day. Regardless, it would help to avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting. 

Your surgeon will confirm your wound’s expected recovery time during your consultation. However, your wound should not take longer than two weeks to heal.

You may be subject to follow-up assessments to monitor your recovery. 

Though pain post-surgery is uncommon, your surgeon will recommend what over-the-counter medication is needed to suppress it. 

You must contact your surgeon if any of your pain or inflammation persists after medication.

Frequently Asked Questions Cyst Removal (FAQs)

What are cysts?

A cyst is a closed sac or pouch filled with fluid, air, or other material that forms under the skin. They can develop in any part of the body and vary from tiny to large.

Many different types of cysts can form in various parts of the body. Some common examples include sebaceous cysts, which contain oily material from hair follicles; ganglion cysts, which develop near joints and tendons; and ovarian cysts, which occur in the ovaries.

What does a cyst look like?

Cysts can appear as a lump or bump on the skin's surface and may feel firm or soft to the touch. They are often round or oval-shaped and can be filled with pus, blood, or other bodily fluids. Cysts may not be visible in some cases but can be felt under the skin. Depending on their size and location, they may also cause pain or discomfort.

What does a cyst feel like?

The sensation of a cyst can vary depending on its type and location. Some may feel like a small, smooth bump under the skin, while others may be larger and more noticeable. It may be movable and is typically non-tender. If a cyst becomes infected or inflamed, it may feel tender or painful to touch. Sometimes, a cyst may not cause physical symptoms but can still be felt by pressing on the affected area.

What is inside a cyst?

The contents of a cyst can also vary, depending on the type. Some common types of cysts include sebaceous cysts, which are filled with oily or cheesy material, and ganglion cysts, which contain a thick, gelatinous fluid. Other cysts may contain blood, pus, or other bodily fluids. Sometimes, a cyst may be primarily solid and filled with tissue or cells. If you suspect a cyst, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

How do you tell if a lump is a cyst?

Discovering a lump or bump on your body can be concerning and raise questions about its nature. It is always best to consult a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis, but some clues may indicate if the lump is a cyst.

Cysts often feel smooth and circular to the touch and can move freely beneath the skin. However, it's important to note that this isn't always the case, as some cysts might be connected to tissues or organs, which can lead to complications.

Another sign of a cyst is its size. Cysts are typically smaller than an inch in diameter but can grow more significant over time. They may also appear as small bumps on the surface of the skin.

In terms of symptoms, cysts usually do not cause any pain or discomfort unless they become infected.

Although most cysts are harmless and do not require treatment, monitoring them for changes or growth is essential. If a cyst becomes painful or swollen or shows signs of infection, such as redness and pus, seek medical attention immediately, as it may need to be drained or removed.

What causes cysts?

Cysts may be caused by several factors, including infections, genetic conditions, and blockages in ducts or glands. The specific cause depends on the type of cyst. Cysts are usually non-cancerous and may go away on their own without treatment. However, some cysts may cause discomfort or become infected and require medical intervention.

What is a sebaceous cyst?

Sebaceous cysts are filled with keratin, a protein found in hair, nails, and skin. They often develop from blocked sebaceous glands.

What does a sebaceous cyst look like?

Sebaceous cysts typically appear as small, round lumps under the skin. They may be yellowish in colour and sometimes have a central pore or punctum (a dark dot in the centre of the cyst).

Do cysts smell?

Cysts may or may not smell bad. If your blister is discharging, the released fluid can smell bad, as these are cells that may have been inside the body for years.

What is the white stuff that comes out of a cyst?

It is usually the secretion of built-up keratin, a protein in your body.

Do cysts go away naturally?

This depends on the type of cyst and its underlying cause. Some cysts, such as ovarian or breast, may go away independently during a woman's menstrual cycle. Others, such as sebaceous cysts, may persist and require medical intervention to be resolved. It's essential to monitor any cysts and consult with a healthcare professional if they do not go away naturally or if they continue to grow in size. In some cases, further treatment may be necessary to prevent complications or recurrence of the cyst.

How much does it cost to have a cyst removed?
