Pimple Popping and Lump Lopping: Two Easy Techniques To Enhance Your Office Practice

Thursday, November 23
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM

Epidermoid cysts (previously called sebaceous cysts) are a common presentation in the family practice setting. Although they are generally benign, these cysts can be bothersome and unsightly, and are prone to spontaneous inflammation and infection, which can be painful and disfiguring. Traditional surgical techniques for excision can be time consuming and do not always guarantee complete resolution. The minimal excision technique for epidermoid cysts is an alternative, simple, and quick surgical procedure that can be performed in almost any family practice setting and can be easily learned. This session will review patient selection for, contraindications to, and the performance of the minimal excision technique, including a live demonstration on a simulated cyst.



In addition, participants will learn about the technique of saucerization biopsies, which can often be performed in the office setting to rule out significant skin pathology with great ease and speed.
