The treatment of cysts and abscesses depends on their size, location, and underlying cause.
Cysts: Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop anywhere in the body. They are typically non-cancerous and can vary in size from very small to several centimeters in diameter. Cysts may or may not cause symptoms, and they can be caused by various factors, such as infections, clogged oil glands, or underlying medical conditions.
Abscesses: Abscesses are localized collections of pus caused by bacterial infections. They are often painful, swollen, and filled with a thick, yellowish fluid. Abscesses can develop in different parts of the body, including the skin, internal organs, and even in the brain. They need prompt medical attention as they can lead to severe complications if left untreated.
