Cysts are quite common among the general population and are, in most cases, noncancerous. They show up as sac-like cavities that are typically filled with keratin. These growths can form anywhere on the face and body in a variety of shapes and sizes and often feel like a lump under the skin. While most cysts do not cause harm or pain, some can become troublesome for patients if the increase in size or become inflamed and unsightly. Those that are larger in size are usually surgically removed and sent for biopsy to ensure they are a benign cyst. Our Dallas, Texas practice treats many kinds of cysts under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston. Our skilled team can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan at our office, Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC while taking into account your medical needs and history.
"Great, as always!"- E.W. / ZocDoc / Jan 16, 2019
"This is my first Yelp review EVER, that's how good Dr. Kingston is. I was a new patient and have suffered from chronic acne for over a decade. I printed the "New patient form" and filled it out before I arrived. I wasn't in the waiting room for more than 5 minutes. It's the most beautiful doctors office I've ever seen, all windows, clean, and very easy parking. She came in quickly and immediately questioned me about my problems. Then she did a thorough teaching session about my treatment plan, making sure I didn't have any questions before I left. And who said she doesn't look like the pictures on Yelp? WHAT?! She's even more beautiful in person, even though that shouldn't make a difference. The desk lady was incredibly nice, the nurse was incredibly nice, and obviously so was the dr. The entire appointment took less than 30 minutes in and out. I was so nervous to come to the doctor about my skin, thinking she would tell me she knew more about my condition than I did. (I've had this problem for over 10 years. I know what my skin likes /dislikes) She listened to me. She educated me. God bless this Dr!!!"- K.K. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2019

"fast and easy! Very nice staff."- Anonymous / ZocDoc / Dec 03, 2019
"Office is so charming, making a trip to the doctor's office that much more appealing. Staff is extremely pleasant and welcoming. Parking is easy and free on surrounding streets. Got a photo-facial done by Mia, who took the extra step of walking me through the whole process as a first timer. It's a great way of removing sun-spots on the face. Already seeing great results! Highly recommended."- J.P. / Google / Nov 28, 2019
There are numerous factors that can lead to a cyst's formation. Cysts can develop around a foreign object such as an ingrown hair or from a piercing within the skin (such as earrings) or as the result of a clogged oil gland within the skin. Although the majority of cysts are benign, some could potentially be cancerous. We will discuss whether or not the cyst needs further treatment and if so, options for treatment.
The symptoms associated with a cyst vary, depending on the size and location of the growth. In most cases, cysts are detected by an abnormal lump beneath the skin. Some of these lumps can be painful, especially if they become inflamed or rupture while others may be visible but painless. Small cysts, which are more common, often do not cause symptoms or exhibit any indication of ongoing growth and may be barely noticeable.
A number of treatment solutions for cysts are available at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC. Common treatments for cysts can include intralesional steroid injection, oral antibiotics or other prescription medications, draining the cyst or surgical removal. The good news is that most types of cysts can be effectively treated once a proper diagnosis has been established.
