Cysts are non-cancerous sacs of fluid, pus, gas or other matter. They can occur anywhere on the body. Cysts may require antibiotic therapy if they become infected. Because they are benign, they do not require treatment or removal unless associated with infection, increasing size, irritation or pain. In most instances, treatment is not covered by medical insurance. Chelsea Skin & Laser can easily remove them if the patient desires.
Angiomas, milia, lipomas, dermatofibromas, seborrheic keratosis (SK), skin tags are other types of benign growths.
