What is a Cyst?
Cysts are relatively common among the general population and are, in most cases, noncancerous. They appear as round growths, typically pea-sized initially, on the face or body and generally comprise dead skin. Cysts can grow anywhere on the body and in all sizes and shapes. Although most cysts do not cause pain or harm, some may grow to become problematic for patients. Bigger cysts should typically be removed and sent for evaluation. Our Encinitas, CA practice, Kind Health Group, treats various types of cysts and can offer a proper diagnosis and treatment strategy according to your medical requirements and history.

"I’ve gotten a lot of facials before but this place is by far my favorite place. Jenna works wonders and is so friendly and fun. She takes her time and explains everything in thorough detail. I always leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed."- S.N. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2022
"Having been a patient myself at Kind Medical Group, I was sure that the decision to bring my daughter in for care was a great idea…but I was still blown away at the level of care, kindness, and expertise that Kellye shared with us. We’d been through a few dermatologists with little success and a lot of frustration. I was so pleased to see how comfortable my daughter felt and was so happy to see her have hope again that she can have clear skin! Kellye, the PA at Kind, assured us that she had many years experience in treating acne and we left confident that the care plan she thoughtfully laid out for us would be successful. Thank you to the team at Kind for another great experience!"- L.D. / Google / Mar 25, 2022
"I came to Kind Health Group seeking treatment for urinary incontinence. Post menopause and 3 kids, I found myself unable to control my bladder which heavily weighed on my active lifestyle. Being unable to even do a jumping jack without leakage was humiliating! I came across this establishment and instantly felt warm and welcomed inside. Dr. Nanos is so professional and understanding. She made me feel very comfortable when discussing a very personal and embarrassing issue. She recommended the Emsella treatment and WOW my incontinence is completely gone! To be able to live a lifestyle without leakage is something I never thought would happen. I’m truly blown away by how kind and professional everyone is. I highly recommend! They also do a lot of aesthetic treatments as well that I’m sure I’ll be looking into soon. Thank you Kind!"- A.P. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2022

What causes cyst to form?
Severe infection, tumors, and significant illness or disease are a few conditions that may cause cysts to grow. Cysts can also develop around a foreign body or piercing within the outer skin, like earrings, or as the result of a clogged oil gland. Even though the majority of cysts are benign, some might be cancerous.
Symptoms of a Cyst
Generally, cysts are detected through an abnormal lump beneath the skin. Some cysts may be painful, particularly if they get inflamed or ruptured. Another symptom associated with cysts is the hardening of the skin close to the cyst. Larger cysts may lead to the movement of organs, bodily disfigurement, and psychological distress. Small cysts, the most common type, often do not have any notable symptoms or other indications.
Kind Health Group can carefully and precisely excise or remove the cyst to prevent future growth or concern. After removing the cyst, we will send it to be tested to ensure that it is, in fact, benign. If cancer cells are detected, a member of our team will follow up with you to help you plan further treatment steps.
Treatment for cysts
If you have a cyst and are in search of treatment options, contact Kind Health Group to schedule a cyst removal with a member of our team. A comprehensive physical exam will be given, and a treatment plan will be recommended for effective removal. Cysts often cause unnecessary stress, so we encourage anyone who's feeling worried about a growth under the skin to seek answers during a consultation at our Encinitas, CA office.
