AdvaCare Clinics in Bloomington, MN: Cyst Diagnoses & Removal

A cyst is a closed sac that contains air, fluid, or semi-solid material. Signs and symptoms vary.  Treatment for a cyst will depend on the type of cyst, where it is, its size, and the degree of discomfort it is causing. Once formed, a cyst could go away on its own or may have to be removed through surgery. For more detailed information download our printable Cyst Diagnoses & Removal Information Sheet.

The Most Common Types of Cysts

Epidermoid Cyst

  • Small bumps that develop just beneath the skin on your face, neck, trunk.

Bartholin’s Cyst

  • Fluid-filled sac that occurs if the ducts of the Bartholin glands (situated inside the vagina) become blocked,

Chalazion Cyst

  • A cyst in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a blocked meibomian gland

Ganglion Cyst

  • Sacs that contain the synovial fluid found in joints and tendons

Pilonidal Cyst

  • A cyst that develops on your tailbone

Sebaceous Cyst

  • A benign (not cancer), slow-growing cystic lesion

Cyst Removal via Minimal Excision Technique

The minimal excision technique for epidermoid cyst removal is less invasive than complete surgical excision and does not require suture closure. It is a simple and effective method that entirely removes the cyst. A tiny cut is made in the skin, and the cyst contents are squeezed out. The cyst wall is pulled through the skin opening, which is so small that stitches aren’t necessary sometimes. If the entire cyst wall is removed, the cyst usually won’t come back.
