Finger mass/ cyst excision
When a mass or cyst has become bothersome or cannot be treated conservatively it may need to be excised surgically. Depending on the size and depth of the mass, this may be done under local anesthesia. The procedure involves making an incision directly over the mass and dissecting through the surrounding tissues to remove it. Sometimes an MRI may be required for preoperative planning to assess the exact location and depth of the mass. The specimen will be sent to pathology for a definitive diagnosis. Generally, the dressing may be removed 2-3 days after surgery. The sutures will be removed in the office about 2 weeks after surgery and your surgeon will also review your pathology results at that time.
