Dermoid Cyst Removal (cont.)

Dermoid Cyst Removal Treatment

Self-Care at Home

Self-removal of facial cysts at home is not recommended because the cyst will grow back if not completely removed. Chances of infection, bleeding, and other complications increase for people who remove dermoid cysts themselves, especially since the person may not be able to differentiate between a harmless growth and other, more serious skin growths.
