Cysts can occur in organs and many types of tissue throughout the body, including in the skin. In most cases, a cyst does not pose a health risk, but they can cause discomfort or cause a cosmetic concern. There are many different types of cysts and treatment options for cyst removal. Dr. Morgan Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a board certified dermatologist who can offer cyst removal and treatment at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Cysts are pockets filled with fluid. In the skin, there are a few different types of cysts that can form. Epidermoid cysts are small bumps that form in the skin, often on the face, neck or chest. These are usually caused by a buildup of keratin in the skin that creates a change in the skin tissue. Other skin cysts can include pilar cysts, which affect the hair follicles and meibomian and appear near the eyelids. Most are not harmful, but they can be painful and pose a risk of infection. Some cysts are hereditary, while others can be caused by skin irregularities.

Treatment for Skin Cysts

Skin cysts can form anywhere on the body, creating a lump under the skin. Some are hard, some are soft, but none should be squeezed or manipulated to drain or remove. This can cause an infection or spread an existing infection. While some cysts will disappear on their own, treatment or removal should be performed by a physician, preferably a dermatologist.

Some cysts can be treated with topical medication; larger cysts may need to be drained or surgically removed. Expert dermatologist Dr. Morgan can diagnose the type of cyst and will recommend the best treatment to relieve discomfort and the appearance of the lump.

If you have a cyst and need a diagnosis, treatment or removal, contact our team at LM Medical NYC. We offer cyst removal at our clinic on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Call today to book your skin consultation with world-renowned dermatologist Dr. Morgan.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
