Removal of a Superficial Epidermal Cyst

This is just another lesson in patience as it applies to cyst removal. Epidermal cysts are harder to remove intact but this can still be achieved, at times, if the clinician progresses at an appropriate pace. There could certainly have been some debate as to the appropriate type of incision, linear versus elliptical, but at the end of the day, this linear incision worked out well. Special shout out to Dr. Matt, who assisted with this video, and has since moved on in his training. He will do well with these, solo, in the future. Feel free to leave a comment although I’ve been remiss in answering these of late.
