Cysts are benign growths that occur anywhere on the body and can result from a clogged pore. Cysts are usually painless, but rarely resolve on their own. Cysts can become inflamed or infected, causing rapid growth, redness, swelling and pain. These inflamed or infected cysts can be incised and drained with a quick procedure performed in the office. Uninflamed cysts can be removed with surgical excision, also an in-office procedure requiring only local anesthesia.
