Cyst/Lipoma/Mole Removal Q & A

Should I have a cyst or mole removed?

Cysts, moles, and lipomas — bumps filled with fatty tissue — are common among men and women. Often, they’re not dangerous and pose no risk to your health. However, they can be unsightly or bothersome, especially when on your face or frequently exposed area.

As long as there’s no risk of extreme scarring or other complications, the decision to have a benign cyst or mole removed is up to you. If you’re concerned that the lesion is getting bigger, or if Dr. Rishi Patel or Dr. Utpal Patel recommends removal, the team at Lotus Dermatology can eliminate it easily and safely by using one or more effective techniques.

How does cyst or mole removal work?

You start this process with a comprehensive skin assessment to ensure the mole, cyst, or lipoma is not cancerous. Dr. R. Patel or Dr. U. Patel may recommend a biopsy for this purpose.

Several methods can remove a cyst, mole, or lipoma. Depending on the size, location, and nature of the lesion, your physician might recommend:

  • Surgical incision, to cut the mole or cyst out of the skin
  • Drainage, for fluid-filled cysts
  • Shaving, to remove moles and the top layers of skin without incisions
  • Laser therapy, to “burn” a mole off or dry up a cyst

The Lotus Dermatology team makes every effort to ensure your mole and cyst removal is as painless as possible.

What happens after my appointment?

You may have special bandaging or dressing over the treated area, and the skin is usually tender and slightly painful to the touch. Your physician may give you a healing ointment or special skin-care products to reduce scarring or prevent infection.

After a few days or weeks, you come in for a follow-up appointment to ensure your wound is healing properly.

Will my cyst or mole grow back?

Sometimes cysts and moles can grow back in the same location. Dr. R. Patel or Dr. U. Patel recommends various skin-care habits to help prevent this recurrence, such as using antibacterial soaps, wearing sunscreen, or using exfoliating products.

The Lotus Dermatology team is highly skilled in mole, cyst, and lipoma removal. Your healthy, beautiful skin is their top priority, no matter how stubborn your mole or cyst appears to be.
