About Sebaceous Cyst

A sebaceous cyst is a skin cyst that appears when the sebaceous gland gets blocked or damaged. It commonly appears around the face, ear, trunk, head, or groin region. It grows slowly and rarely causes pain. Small cysts may also disappear after some time but in case the size is large, you may have to opt for draining or surgical procedure, especially if the cyst is swollen or painful.

You can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult our expert plastic surgeons to find out the most plausible treatment method for sebaceous cysts.

Treatment

Diagnosis

For proper diagnosis of a sebaceous cyst, the doctor will first ask for your medical history and perform a physical examination. The appearance of the cyst is usually enough to determine whether the lump on your skin is a sebaceous cyst or not.

If the physical exam cannot provide clear evidence, the doctor may suggest the following tests:

  • Ultrasound- An ultrasound will help the doctor to take a look at the cyst contents.
  • CT Scan- A CT scan or other imaging tests are usually recommended when the surgeon suspects that the cyst may require surgical treatment. This test helps the doctor to identify the abnormalities in the cyst and identify the best route for treatment.
  • Punch Biopsy- A punch biopsy may be required to confirm whether the skin lump is cancerous or not. A small amount of tissue will be taken from the cyst and examined to look for signs of cancer.

After seeing the results of these tests, the doctor will suggest the most plausible treatment method for the patient.

At Pristyn Care, Ahmedabad, our plastic surgeons employ the advanced and conventional techniques as required to treat a sebaceous cyst.

In case the cyst is small yet bothersome for the patient, the doctor may use a steroid drug to control and manage the symptoms. If the cyst grows significantly and becomes large, tender, or inflamed, the doctor will suggest draining or surgical removal.

The standard procedures employed by Pristyn Care’s plastic surgeons are:

  • Conventional Wide Excision- In this procedure, the surgeon makes a large incision around the lump, drains its contents, and excises the skin that is inflamed or infected.
  • Minimally Invasive Excision- As the name suggests, the procedure is carried out through a tiny incision. The cyst is drained and only the infected skin tissues are excised, thereby treating the sebaceous cyst.

Both these methods are safe and effective in treating a sebaceous cyst treat regardless of its size and leave almost negligible chances of recurrence. If you have been diagnosed with a sebaceous cyst, you can get in touch with Pristyn Care and consult our plastic surgeons to learn more about the excision procedures.

Sebaceous Cyst Vs. Epidermoid Cyst

A sebaceous cyst is commonly found on the face, neck, and torso. It usually forms when the sebaceous glands are damaged or traumatized due to cuts, injuries, or surgical wounds. It is a non-cancerous and slow-growing cyst that may cause pain or put pressure on the area.

Unlike a sebaceous cyst, an epidermoid cyst is a slow-growing benign cyst that is commonly found on the face, neck, head, and genitals. It appears when keratin starts to build up under the skin. The epidermoid cyst has a skin-colored, tanned, or yellowish appearance and is filled with thick material. An epidermoid cyst may become swollen or red if it gets inflamed or infected.

How to prepare for sebaceous cyst removal?

To prepare your body for a surgical procedure, the doctor will first ask you to get tested properly. These tests will evaluate your overall health and help the doctor to determine what precautions need to be taken during sebaceous cyst removal.

Other than tests, the doctor may ask the following things to prepare you for the surgery:

  • Stop smoking and drinking alcohol.
  • Do not try to press or pop the cyst.
  • Do not eat anything 8 hours before the surgery.
  • Avoid wearing makeup on the day of surgery.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothes that you can change easily before and after the procedure.
  • Keep your insurance papers ready prior to admission to the hospital.

Besides these, no further preparations are required for sebaceous cyst removal surgery. The anesthetist will also ask if you have an allergy to some foods or compounds to determine what type of anesthesia will be appropriate to use. Standard tests, like liver function tests, blood tests, blood pressure examinations, etc. will also be performed right before the surgery.

Sebaceous Cyst Surgery Recovery Time & Tips

As sebaceous cyst excision is not a major surgery, the patient recovers quickly without any complications. The average recovery time after sebaceous cyst surgery is 2-3 weeks and that too if the cyst was infected or very large. After a small-sized cyst excision, the patient may only need around 1 week to recover completely.

On the day of surgery, you will be asked to take complete rest as the body will still have the lingering effects from anesthesia. Here are some tips that you should follow during the recovery phase to get back to your daily routine as soon as possible:

  • Keep the wound covered with a dry bandage. There may be some drainage from the wound for a couple of days. So, you’ll have to change the bandages frequently.
  • If gauze is placed over the wound, you may have to get it removed after some time. Or the doctor will tell you how to remove the gauze yourself.
  • If oral antibiotics or pain medications are prescribed by the doctor, make sure that you take the medicines as directed.
  • Do not push your body to its limits. In the initial days, the body itself will tell you when to resume a specific activity.
  • There will be no restrictions on diet. But it will be better if you eat a healthy and balanced diet with plenty of fiber and water content.
  • Take follow-ups with the doctor after the first week and then as suggested to monitor the recovery and identify complications (if any) before they become serious.

You can contact the doctor for help at any time during the recovery as well.
