Varies: Cost for procedures can vary from place to place. Best to call ahead and ask for pricing. Some places can offer steep discounts for cash payers, so ask in advance!

Several hundred: A trip to an urgent care center will be less expensive than going to an er; try to find a public hospital if you go to an er. There are also free clinics- try to find one near you. Good luck.

Epidermoid Cyst: Epidermoid cysts represent the most common cutaneous cysts. While they may occur anywhere on the body, they occur most frequently on the face, scalp, neck, and trunk. When the cyst starts to hurt, the cyst has ruptured which is more difficult to treat. Surgery is necessary and can cost from $200-800 dollars.
