Have medical questions? Ask a doctor online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
usually cysts are filled with fluid
and should be drained by a needle, or cut open by a surgeon
you may want to go to a surgeon or plastic surgeon to have the cyst drained
you should use an ice pack on the area now and cold compresses, perhaps that will help it shrink or drain
ice can decrease swelling
heat can help relax muscles or open up skin pores.
a warm towel can help it drain or pop possibly
I doubt the doctor missed the cyst
skin cyst usually get better with time. sometimes it can take some times for cyst to get better
sebaceous skin cyst sometimes need surgery to remove them.
I would ice it for now
and see your doctor in follow up in 1-2 weeks if it doesn't get better
let me know if you have other questions
if done, please leave positive feedback
