Where do cysts develop?
- Most skin cysts originate from superficial skin structures around hair follicles and/or oil glands
- Appear as firm bumps or nodules
- Can develop anywhere on your body, but tend to favor the face, neck, and back
For most people, cysts in their skin don’t cause problems and don’t require medical intervention. Your cyst may resolve on its own over time or remain unchanged forever.
However, you should contact your provider at Dermatology, Inc. if the cyst:
- Grows rapidly
- Causes pain
- Is red and inflamed
- Is bothersome
