In brief: Abscess:I&D Vs cyst

There is a big difference between an cyst or abscess ( which is essentially an infected cyst).
The goal of abscess treatment is to drain the collection and resolve the infection. Removal is difficult, painful, and complicated when infected, however prior to infection or once the infection has been treated, then surgical removal is commonly performed of the cyst and is a preferable option.
