How long will I take to heal after Cyst Removal?

Cyst Removal Question:Your Questions Answered by the Surgeons at Aurora Clinics

Dear Aurora Clinics, I discovered a cyst in my armpit a couple of years ago and sought the advice of my doctor who informed me that it should be surgically removed.

This was carried out six months ago but one month after surgery I had to return because of pain. I still take oral antibiotics and cream and the wound is still red.

Sometimes I can see white coloured thick liquid oozing out when I apply pressure to the wound. How long will it take to heal completely?

Cyst Removal Answer:

It does sound as though you have a residual infection in your armpit area. Generally we would advise that you have a further course of antibiotics.

When the area has settled down, the scarred region would need to be removed in order to reach the source of the infection.

It would be better to see you at the clinic so as we can discuss the best way forward for you. Please schedule a consultation by ringing us on 01324 578290.

Best Wishes,
