Genital lesion excision

Approximate time30-45 min

This procedure treats sebaceous cysts on the penis or scrotum.

First, the skin is disinfected. Then, the local anesthetic is administered. An incision is made in the skin and the cyst is carefully dissected and excised. Minor bleeding is managed using electrocautery. The incision is then closed with dissolvable sutures. Typically, Tylenol is adequate for relieving post-operative pain. Avoid showering and strenuous physical activity for 24 hours after the procedure. Baths are allowed  48 hours after the procedure.
