Dermal cysts are basically sacs filled with fluid and can be commonly found growing in the back, abdomen, chest, and other areas of the body. They tend to typically start small and may get bigger as time goes on. If you have a cyst and have noticed that it’s become bigger or has become painful, then you need to have it checked out by a doctor. Your doctor will examine the cyst and may suggest performing a Cyst excision to get rid of it. While there is a chance that the cyst might come back, the doctor will try to remove the sac entirely to minimise that risk.
Callosities are thickened and hardened parts of the skin, generally called calluses. Callosities can be eliminated by getting rid of the pressure or friction placed on the area of the skin. When there is constant friction or pressure, it can result in a corn or callus over time. So, get rid of the friction and the callus will eventually go away. There are some over-the-counter remedies that can help. But if the area gets infected, you may need antibiotics and even a minor surgery to resolve the problem.
Warts resemble callosities and are more commonly found on your fingers and hands. Warts can be dealt with over-the-counter remedies or with medical intervention. If a wart starts bleeding, then its best that you see a doctor immediately. Your doctor may suggest laser treatment to remove the wart. There are other treatment options as well, such as cryotherapy and immunotherapy.
Your doctor may suggest Nail Removal in instances where you nail becomes infected, is injured or is painful due to ingrowth. Surgical Nail Removal is a quick and safe procedure. Your doctor will inject the finger or toe to prevent pain and remove a part or whole of the nail.
