Cyst Rupture Under Skin
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Pimple: Whiteheads or cysts under the skin are often treated with extraction , a technique where a dermatologist makes a tiny nick in the skin with a small needle and presses out the sebum with an instrument (comedone extractor). If a cyst is present for a long time it may be surgically removed. See a dermatologist for treatment options based on the size and type of the cyst. ...Read more
NO, not likely: There is no connection between these two sites as they are so far apart from each other. ...Read more
Yes: Hi Jeniffer, Yes, the arm pit is a common place for cysts to develop. Based on your brief description, I am unsure of what type of cyst you may have, however just for your general information. I have included an article about epidermoid and sebaceous cysts, a common type of cyst that we encounter clinically. Hope this helps. http://wb.md/1k6wVL9 ...Read more
Yes!!: This can happen but world require some type of pressure or manipulation typically. These types of cysts grow slowly and are usually removed surgically. ...Read more
Presacral ultrasound shows "thickening/edema of subcutaneous fatty tissue". PAINFUL and hard lump under the skin and can be felt. Surgical removal?
U/S is non specific: You need diagnosis. More history. The U/S adds a little but not enough. MRI would also add info, but again may not be enough. MRI would be most sensitive in seeing borders and might give useful info for a surgeon, for ex. vascularity. Only surgeons can decide on incisional bx. vs. excision. Hacking around is cheapest, but for me (a radiologist) MRI is good to avoid surprises and safe to do. ...Read more
Yes: So in general sebaceous cysts will not every completely go away unless they are removed. This requires a minor surgery. How minor depends on the size of the cyst. These can be often be done in the office under local anesthesia if done early when they are small, however, if large enough may require more than just local anesthesia. Best is to consult with a surgeon - general or plastic surgeon. ...Read more
Check with your dr: If truly a sebaceous cyst, it will follow a vicious cycle of filling with sebum, becoming infected, draining, then starting over. If infected now, may require incision and drainage by doctor. Once healed, have sac removed to prevent recurrence. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, can abscess drainage leave hard lump under the skin something like a scar tissue. Abscess was pretty big and healed by granulation 10 yrs ago?
Purple,fluid filled sac on scalp that hangs by a thin piece of skin similar to skin tag. Sac popped when squeezed with minimal pressure ?
Have an exam.: This sounds strange and I can recall nothing from my experience that could explain this. A doctor could have tested the fluid for the presence of blood (a guiac test) and also cultured the fluid. Blood blisters often appear dark, but usually are not on a stalk. Sometimes there are no substitutes for an exam by touching and feeling and looking with your naked eye. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a cyst grow bigger under skin? Tenderness and aches around and spreading out from cyst under armpit and into breast but no visible inflammation.
Yes: Hi Marsha, Yes it can. "Cyst" is somewhat of a general term as there are many types of cysts. By your description, you may have an infected cyst if you are having tenderness/pain and it feels like it is enlarging. Sometimes infections that are deeper will not clearly show much redness over the skin. It may be worthwhile getting it examined by a physician. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more
Is it possible that my pilonidal cyst is just a collection of hair and skin debris causing a solid movable lump under the skin by the tailbone?
Yes: That is possible, but it should be examined. A chronic infection with intermittent drainage is common, and managing it before it becomes a worse infection is desireable, although not always possible. See a general surgeon for a consultation, and ask if they have experience with pilonidal cyst treatment. Hope this helps! ...Read more
