Scalp Cyst Removal | Epidermoid Cyst | Pilar Cyst |

Scalp Cysts are common, and can become large and visible. At Stafford Skincare - Lichfield, Scalp Cysts are removed by first injecting the area with a local anaesthetic to numb the Cyst. A small opening is made and the Cyst is removed through the opening, which is then closed with stitches. No hair needs to be cut prior to the procedure. The stitches are removed 10 - 14 days later. 

After the procedure, the area is usually flat, with a small linear scar, and there is minimal hair loss. Unfortunately, Scalp Cysts have a tendency to recur, even if they have been completely removed.


Stafford Skincare only offers removal of small Cysts from the scalp, which measure 15mm or less in size. We don't offer removal of Cysts on the face, as these often need more complex surgery. 


A Consultation is necessary before any skin surgery, and includes examination of the Cyst, discussion of the pros and cons of Cyst removal, and signing Consent Forms once you are fully aware of what the procedure involves and possible consequences. It is recommended that the Scalp Cyst is sent for analysis - histological examination - to confirm that it is harmless. The cost for removal of a Scalp Cyst, with histology examination, is shown in the Price List.
