Cysts are sacs filled with substance that typically start off small but may get bigger over time. In some cases, they cyst might get infected as a result of trauma or rupture and become painful. If this happens, the best course of action is to have the cyst removed. Cyst Excisions are minor surgeries performed to remove the cyst. It is important to remove not just the contents of the sac but the sac itself. This will prevent the cysts from recurring.
Corn or Callosites are thickened patches of skin. They are commonly found in the feet and are a result of constant friction or pressure on the spot. If they get infected, Callosites may require surgery to be removed. The procedure is quick and can be performed in under an hour.
Warts are generally harmless, hard patches on the skin. They tend to appear on fingers and hands and can be treated with over-the-counter remedies. But it is recommended that you see a doctor to get them resolved immediately to avoid the risk of infection. The same goes for Nail Removal.
