Lumps & Bumps


While seemingly mundane, a sebaceous cyst or lipoma can be an annoying and disfiguring problem. I am experienced in removing these lesions in a cosmetically acceptable manner. I treat:

  • Infected cysts
  • Chronic cysts
  • Lipomas
  • Other lumps, even cancerous ones

Infected cysts can be drained in the office. Small chronic cysts and small lipomas can be removed in the office. Larger chronic cysts, larger lipomas, or lumps that may be more serious require treatment in the operating room (typically as a same-day surgical procedure).
