Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For how long are you having this?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Can you please let me know for how long are you having this?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you having any symptoms like pain?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Customer:

No Pain, just noticed it

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You mentioned that you went to GP five years ago.
Was it for this same cyst?

Customer:

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have a picture that you could send me?

Customer:

No

Dr. Shahzad MD :

From what you are describing it sounds like a sebaceous cyst.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

These are harmless cysts.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Sometimes they become infected and cause pain.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But otherwise they are safe and nothing serious.

Customer:

My GP said the same thing back then but I had a black speck on it then, which has got bigger

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The black speck is called as the punctum or the opening of the cyst.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It can get bigger with time and that in itself is not something to worry about.

Customer:

I think it may be a good idea to have it removed, he did offer at the time, I guess i panicked a bit

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You can have it removed.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its a very simple outpatient procedure.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You will be done in a few minutes time.

Customer:
