Cysts Removal in Long Island, NY
Cysts are sacs filled with fluid, pus and other substances. Head and neck cysts are of particular concern because the growths can infiltrate surrounding tissues. For residents in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York. Eunice E. Park, MD, is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology) specialist who offers cyst removal.
What is Cysts Removal?
Cysts are abnormal growths that contain fluid, pus or another type of substance. A small cyst may resolve without treatment, but larger cysts and those that affect surrounding tissues and nerves, such as cysts on the head and neck, require an evaluation by Dr. Park. Cysts may cause no symptoms, but some cause pain and tissue damage. Because the head and neck have various anatomical structures, a cyst that develops in these areas may cause complications.
Benefits of Cysts Removal
Cysts on the throat or ears may only pose a cosmetic concern, but cysts that develop in other areas of the head and neck may cause:
- Pain if the cyst presses against or affects a nerve
- An abscess
- Problems with muscle control and joint movement
A small cyst may continue to grow, so even if you do not have symptoms now, you may have problems in the future.
Cyst removal may reduce the risk of complications and reduce your symptoms.
Am I a Candidate for Cysts Removal?
If you notice a lump under your skin, you may have a cyst or other type of abnormal growth. An examination by Dr. Park helps you understand the type of growth and your treatment options. If the growth is a cyst, Dr. Park may recommend that you monitor the cyst for any changes. If Dr. Park determines that the cyst is affecting surrounding tissues, she may recommend cyst removal.
What to Expect from Cysts Removal
The goal of cyst removal surgery is to drain the contents of the sac. Dr. Park may also need to repair surrounding tissues. She may send a sample of the contents or a piece of the cyst membrane to a lab. Some cysts may be cancerous, so this allows for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
