Cyst Removal in Toronto, Ontario

A cyst, also known as a sebaceous or epidermal cyst, are growths beneath your skin that are found most commonly on your back, neck, chest or abdomen. These benign cysts form as a result of clogging of sebaceous glands or ingrown hairs. If left untreated, cysts can become infected or burst, causing a lot of discomfort, inflammation and larger scars in these areas. Additionally, if cyst lining and contents are not completely removed, as in cases of infections or ruptures, the cysts have a high likelihood of recurrence.
