Cysts are filled with fluid, air or other material. They can appear anywhere on your body, including your knees, fingers and wrists. They may or may not be painful. Most cysts are not cancerous.


Our primary care doctors may recommend draining your cyst with an incision. In some cases, we may remove the cyst completely so we can test it for cancer. The procedure may be more involved if your cyst is in a difficult location or inside your body. In other cases, we may use a carbon dioxide laser to vaporize the cyst, which results in minimal scarring and bleeding.
