A cyst is a closed pocket of tissue that contains pus, fluid, skin cells, or other materials. They can develop anywhere on the body, including the skin, organs, and soft tissues. Many cysts are harmless and do not necessitate treatment. Some may cause discomfort, become infected, or pose a cosmetic concern, necessitating cyst removal.
Cyst removal in Singapore generally involves a minor surgical procedure conducted under local anaesthesia.

The cyst removal process is performed under local anaesthesia, so the patient should not feel pain during the procedure. There may be mild discomfort or soreness after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
While cysts can recur, complete surgical removal significantly reduces the likelihood of this happening. If a cyst does return, it can be removed again.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks, including infection, scarring, and an adverse reaction to anaesthesia. These are rare and the procedure is generally safe when performed by a qualified dermatologist.
