Cyst Removal Surgery in Karol Bagh, Delhi

Cysts are small sac-like pockets or closed capsules filled with semi-solid, liquid or gaseous material.  They are membranous tissues that can contain air and grow anywhere on your body. 

They can be found on the skin anywhere in the body or even inside your body, like in the gastrointestinal tract. 

What is cyst removal surgery?

Cysts in the gastrointestinal tract are usually found in the ileum of the small intestine, the esophagus or the stomach. Large cysts can even displace internal organs. Most of these cysts are benign and non-harmful, but some can be cancerous or precancerous.

Gastrointestinal cysts are rare whereas skin cysts are more common. If these sacs are filled with pus, the cysts are known as abscesses. This happens when the cysts are infected. Some of the most common cysts include sebaceous cysts, these are the ones that get formed underneath your skin. Then there are breast cysts and pilonidal cysts, which are usually found above the hips. 

Cyst removal surgery is done when these cysts cause complications in the body. For further information, contact cyst removal surgery specialists near you.

What are the basic methods of cyst removal?

Once it is decided that you have a skin cyst that needs to be removed, the doctor can use several methods to remove that cyst.

Drainage: In this procedure, you will be given anesthesia. After that, an incision will be made in your body, near the location of the cyst. The cyst will then be drained through this incision. After the cyst is completely drained, the incision will be sealed and you will be allowed to go home.

Fine-Needle Aspiration: In this procedure, the doctor or surgeon will insert a fine needle in the cyst to drain it out. This procedure is generally conducted for breast cysts as they can recur. It is also used to conduct biopsies. 

Surgery: In an open surgery, you will be given anesthesia. Once anesthesia starts working, a surgeon will make an incision on the location of the cyst. After the incision is made, the cyst will be removed from the body. This procedure usually leaves a scar on 
the body.

Laparoscopy: This procedure is usually used to remove ovarian cysts. During the procedure, a scalpel is used by a surgeon to make incisions. A laparoscope, a tube-like instrument with a camera at the end, is inserted inside the body through these incisions. This instrument is then used to locate the cyst inside the ovary and then remove it. This is a minimally invasive procedure and hence, it results in less scarring.

Who qualifies for the procedure?

Anyone who has a cyst can get cyst removal surgery. Most cysts are benign or harmless and hence, don’t require surgical treatment. If you have a cyst, you should go to a doctor and get a biopsy or a check-up done, to make sure that the cyst is not cancerous or causing complications in your body like displacing organs or blocking blood flow.  You should call cyst removal surgery doctors near you for further information.
