Cyst/Skin Lesion Removal Procedure

After thoroughly disinfecting the area, the area around the lesion will be numbed using a local anaesthetic. The lesion will be excised in an oval shape. The sample will then be sent to the lab for analysis. The wound will be closed with stitches (if required) and covered with a dressing.

Aftercare

You will be given detailed aftercare advice and including when to remove stitches.

After Cyst/Skin Lesion removal

You would be able to go home on the same day. You should be able to resume work on the same day or the next day unless your work may result in pressure over the wound, in which case the surgeon will provide further advice.

Diagnosis

For your peace of mind, the surgeon will book a follow up to discuss the results of the lab analysis.

Types of Skin Lesions

There are several types of lesions and lesions that can develop on the skin, such as:

  • Nevus: Consists of melanocytes and can be congenital or acquired.

  • Congenital Nevus: Present at birth and are more likely to develop into skin cancer.

  • Dysplastic Nevus: Irregularly shaped with uneven colouring and higher risk of melanoma.

  • Spitz Nevus: Common in children with pink, red, or skin-coloured appearance.

  • Dermal Nevus: Deeper in the skin, raised or flat, and vary in colour.

  • Acrochordons: Skin tags, small benign growths on neck, underarms, or groin.

  • Seborrheic Keratoses: Benign, waxy, raised lesions in brown or black.

  • Basal Cell Carcinomas: Most common skin cancer type, small pearly bumps.

  • Squamous Cell Carcinomas: Rough, scaly patches often on sun-exposed areas.

  • How are Cysts Lesions Removed?

    There are several methods used for cyst and lesion removal, including:

  • Cryotherapy: Freezing the lesion with liquid nitrogen.

  • Laser removal: Using a focused beam of light to vaporize the growth.

  • Surgical excision: Cutting out the lesion and stitching the wound.

  • Shave excision: Shaving off the lesion with a scalpel for surface growths.

  • Before removal, the area is numbed with a local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort. You will be given aftercare instructions post-procedure to ensure proper healing and to reduce scarring.

    What is a Sebaceous Cyst?

    A sebaceous cyst is a benign growth formed under the skin when a sebaceous gland becomes blocked. Typically painless, sebaceous cysts can develop on the face, neck, or torso. If causing discomfort or pain, consult a clinician for treatment options, including surgical removal.

    What is Seborrheic Keratoses?

    Seborrheic keratoses are benign growths appearing as waxy, raised lesions in brown or black. Common in middle age or later, they are usually harmless and are usually found on the face, chest, or back. Consult a clinician if causing concern or irritation for treatment options.

    What is a Nevi

    A nevus is a benign skin mole made of melanocytes, present at birth or developing later in life. Monitor for changes in size, shape, or colour, as they can indicate skin cancer. Consult a clinician if any concerns arise.

    What is a Lipoma?

    A lipoma is a benign tumour of fat cells, soft to the touch and usually painless. Found on the torso, arms, or legs, they are common in middle-aged and older individuals. Consult a healthcare provider if a lipoma causes discomfort or concern for treatment options.
