Rarely have to. Syringoma is a benign (noncancerous) skin tumor that is derived from eccrine cells related to sweat glands. The skin lesions usually appear during puberty or adult life, and consist of small bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that form under the surface of the skin. The most frequent site is the eyelids and around the eyes, Syringomas because of small size are rarely excised.
I have all these little white bumps under my eyes that look like syringoma. They embarrass me, how do I get rid of them, is it expensive?
Syringomas. A dermatologist can burn them off or otherwise make them vanish, probably for little more than the price of an office visit.
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.
Laser. Most of the time I treat these with the Erbium laser and ablate the areas. They can return or you can get new lesions that may require additional treatment down the road. We apply topical anesthesia, and the whole treatment takes 20-30 minutes. Good Luck.
Yes. Neurosurgeons may be able to remove it.
Syringomas. There are a number of methods of treatment that exist for treating syringoma, though the most highly recommended are laser therapy using a carbon dioxide laser and pinpoint electrocautery.
