Come on mate....... hopefully the cyst on your neck isn't your head.

Go to your Doctor, that question is a 'no brainer'.

Google "Doctors in Basel"

Hopefully std's cyst isn't caused by an STD... that would be embarrasing

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

Thank you for your helpful replies but i was looking for more accurate informations like a specialist contacts ¨medical specialist¨, that would have saved me the visit to the generalist who told me that it was a ruptured cyst and it has to be removed by surgery which i already knew, then he referred me to a surgeon as he could not do it himself (the doctor),
Anyway, i had my surgery and got the cyst entirely removed and everything seems to be fine.

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

Dear std,

First of all your location "Switzerland" is a bit too vague to give you a list of specialists to help you with your problem.
2nd since most of EFers are no doctors, why would we know what specialist you need?
3rd it is YOUR responsibility to ask your GP for a referal
4th you can GOOGLE it...jeez.....

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

Dear Angela-74,

1-I believe i have mentioned basel area.
2-I was not necessarily looking for a doctor in the EF. somebody who had the same experience would have referred me, that's what this forum is all about, sharing experiences.
3-My GP is not in Switzerland .
4-That's what i did.
I didn't mean to upset anybody and if i did than i am sorry.

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

Dear Std,

I'm sorry you got such sarcatic replies to your question on this forum -- I was curious too about this issue and was wondering if it is worth waiting until I go to the States to have a cyst in my hand removed, since I have a big insurance deductable here in CH. Can I ask how much this procedure cost roughly? Thanks.

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

dermatologist can take care of them. I just had one done from an ingrown hair....feels good to have it gone. for me its free cause it is my aunt in Belgium that does it so I have no idea of the cost.

I had one removed from the back of my hand about 2 years ago at a local hospital. Cost was just over CHF. 300.- with my health insurance reimbursing me a whopping CHF. 3.50..!!

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

Gross content warning, don't watch if you're a bit squeamish, also, this isn't something you should try at home apparently. If it were me, I'd probably have been sick, which can't be very hygenic.

Re: Where to get cyst removed??

That will depend on the size, location and skill of the surgeon. My mum had one on her face removed and the surgeon made the incision along one of the lines on her face so although the scar is a couple of cm long you can't see it. If the cyst is somewhere very visible then you can consult a plastic surgeon to see if scarring can be kept to the minimum.
