I'm a little freightend I have a t facial pain in the palate, but been told I have impacted wisdom tooth with cyst@cheek is swollen, could you reassure?

Follow up cyst: I am not sure what you mean by "a t" facial pain, nor how long ago your cyst was first seen, but swelling of the same cheek (as the cyst) with pain suggests that your cyst may have grown and could now be infected. Follow up with your oral surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Even if symptoms were to temporarily ease up, do not ignore. ...Read more

I popped a cyst on my face and it popped inward swelling my whole cheek. It is now down to about a quarter size. Should i be get it checked? Pop it?

NO: There is an area on the face called the "danger area" because infections such as this can more easily spread centrally to your brain. Try hot compresses and let it drain naturally. You may also need it "surgically" drained or require antibiotics. ...Read more

I have a staph or a cyst on my face cheek how can I make it pop?

Don't try to pop it: Especially until you know what it is - don't try to pop it. It might make it worse - infection, spreading, etc. Gently dab it clean, perhaps a mild astringent, let a doctor see it - or at least a good pharmacist. It's your face - don't injure it by popping things. Best! ...Read more

I hace a weird hard pimple or a cyst on my bum cheek with a hole in the middle? What to do?

Bump on buttock: Hard nodules that are brown or purplish that look like they have a dimple in the middle may be a dermatofibroma, a common benign skin growth. Another growth with a hole in the middle may be a cyst. It is best to tell what the lesion is by seeing and palpating it. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis. ...Read more
