This procedure generally has to do with sebaceous cysts on the penis or scrotum.
First the skin is disinfected, and then local anesthesia is given. The skin is incised and the cyst is dissected and excised. Minor bleeding is sometimes controlled using electrocautery. The skin is closed with absorbable sutures. Taking Tylenol as needed is sufficient to relieve the post-operative pain. Avoid showering and physical exertion for 24 hours after the procedure. Baths are permitted after 48 hours.
