A cyst is a type of abnormal skin growth formation. It usually forms a bump or lump and often is filled with liquid or semi-solid matter. Sometimes a cyst is very microscopic, thus not very noticeable but usually it grows to the size of muscle tissue or organs.
The outer wall of a cyst is commonly referred to as a capsule. This type of formation occurs under a number of circumstances such as pregnancy, cancer, or infection. It can grow anywhere on the body both externally or internally These formations even have been found on internal organs, eyelids, tongue, and gums.
You should learn how to identify a cyst and then you can use steps to get rid of it:
1. Get properly diagnosed before you do anything. A medical doctor or surgical specialist can give you the piece diagnosis as they are trained to identify these cystic formations. Most cysts are harmless but some of the more severe ones are a symptom of cancer.
You know you may have a cyst if if you see a growth sprouting out above your skin. The smaller formations may be mistaken for a raised pimple or mole. However, the larger ones could be mistaken for a cancerous lump.
Either way, it is better to be safe than to be sorry when dealing with cysts. Possible self-misdiagnosis is why professional licensed medical consultation is recommended.
2. Once you are properly diagnosed, seek appropriate treatment. The larger or more lie-threatening cysts can often be removed with surgery. However, surgical removal is not the only path of wellness when it comes to removing these unwanted formations. Another common method of cyst removal involves draining fluid from inside this outgrowth. In rare cases, the cyst will disappear on its own, but do not depend on the odds.
3. Take supplements, when recommended. Sometimes taking a certain vitamin or antioxidant supplement can replenish your system. This will help supply your body with the nutrients it needs and this could help reduce the appearance of your cyst.
Possible effective home remedies include Vitamin C+bioflavinoids, or Vitamin A/Beta Carotin. Eating a diet rich in all these nutrients will reduce need for supplementation. An additional home remedy that some sources claim as effective is colloidal silver.
4. Use this self-care method: A warm compress. This could help relieve symptoms or reduce inflammation of the cyst. Just dip a warm, clean cloth (preferably new one) into warm water and apply it to the affected area.
Do this several times a day in order to encourage loosening of the crystal area which could increase chance of possible drainage. It may not serve as a cure, but it can dramatically increase chances of decreasing amount of time it takes to remove this skin formation.
Not all cysts are harmful. However, the presence of them can rapidly reduce your self-esteem.In any case, the earlier a cyst is noticed the better chance you have of eliminating it. The result is less exposure to conditions that would lower your body’s immune system.
