I had a epidermoid cyst removed by minimal excision little over a week ago. doc checked it monday & said it was healing. however, the skin where the wound was is peeling (the past few days) . can that last a while or should i be concerned?

Incision: Superficial skin peeling is quite fine as long as the incision is closed. Also your doctor could have used a product called Dermabond and this can also peel off and look like skin.
