Electric needle: Syringoma can often be treated with an electric needle called a hyfrecator. I treat these often in my office.

Multiple methods: This is a benign lesion and is often removed during the process of biopsy. If this is in a cosmetically sensitive area then a shave procedure may resolve the problem. However, using a hyfrecator (electrical destruction) may be a better cosmetic procedure. Discussing your options with a dermatologist would be the best next step after your biopsy results come back.
