Cysts Newport Beach
Epidermoid and pilar cysts look like small smooth lumps under the skin surface. They are benign (non-cancerous) and usually cause no harm or problems. Occasionally, they may become infected (when they may become red, inflamed and painful), leak their contents if punctured or damaged, or become uncomfortable or cosmetically undesireable. If required, they can usually be removed easily by a small operation done under local anaesthetic.
