I had a skin cyst...
I had a skin cyst drained 2 weeks ago under my breast. The dermatologist drained it and I went home and it drained for a couple of days. I went to see the doctor yesterday because breast area is sore. She said that it healed up nicely and its normal for soreness because she pushed and drained for a few min. Still s little sore, is it normal! The cyst is under breast and I have large breasts. Bad spot

No redness

The doctor examined me yesterday
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

It doesn't seem to be infection so far. It could be just inflammation. You should take over-the-counter pain medication. If it becomes red and warm, you should see the doctor.

what do you think? Soreness?
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

Did she remove the whole wall?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
she did I already stated that
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

It is difficult to say what it is. It could be hematoma under the skin. You should have ultrasound.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What is hematoma?
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

blood clot with bleeding after removing the cyst

Is it dangerous? I just looked up and it says it's bruising. Why wouldn't my doctor tell me this yesterday !
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

It is not dangerous. It will be absorbed if it is not getting bigger. You should take over-the-counter pain medication such as Naproxen.

Is that why its sore?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Why wouldn't dermatologist tell me this yesterday?
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

I guess she thought it will be absorbed.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Dermatologist: khagihara, Medical doctor replied 2 years ago

That's why it is sore. It should be all right. Take pain medication.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
