What is Cyst Removal?
A cyst is a small sac under the skin that feels like a ball and often contains fluid, air, or dead skin cells. While most cysts are completely harmless and not painful, it is still important to get them checked out by a medical professional. Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her expert team members are happy to remove, biopsy, and diagnose your cysts, whether you’re concerned about your health or simply wish to remove the lump under your skin.
How Much does Cyst Removal Cost?
The price of your cyst removal will vary depending on the removal areas and your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your cyst removal will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.
What Can I Expect During my Cyst Removal Procedure?
Before your cyst removal begins, Dr. Lewis will apply a numbing agent to the treated area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will either drain your cyst by puncturing it and letting collecting the liquid, or excise it by making a small incision just above the area where your cyst lies. After your cyst is removed or drained, you are able to return to your normal daily activities, including work.
