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.
"TMS feels like when you're when your eye twitches but really big. After a while it kind of felt relaxing though, more like a massage. The health coaching was really incredible. The coaches were so warm and insightful. They really listened when they needed it most. Being able to be there in between treatments made for the best counseling I think I've ever received. They were so welcoming and nonjudgmental and were able to give me advice that has helped me really turn my life in the right direction."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Nov 15, 2022
"I’m excited to not have to be on medication for the rest of my life and to be able to feel every emotion without letting it get the best of me.After my first TMS treatment, I felt more emotional than usual. I remember getting in my car and just crying. I didn’t necessarily feel sad, just emotional and hopeful at the same time. The second day of treatment I felt euphorically happy. Third day, I felt a little more annoyed that usual and exhausted. The fourth and fifth day, I was exhausted but felt happy again and extremely grateful."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Nov 01, 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.
