Can a sebaceous cyst be removed above someone’s’ eyebrow?

About 18 months ago I had a sebaceous cyst removed just on my solar plexus, however, I have something that feels like a sebaceous cyst above my eyebrow. However, with the sebaceous cyst on my chest, I had it surgically removed with a local anaesthetic. My question is; can I have one removed if it develops above my eyebrow?

You can certainly have it removed - you may well be able to have it removed under local anaesthetic - go, see your doc before the little critter gets a big critter|!  (+ info)

Is it possible to surgically remove adenocarcinoma ( Cancer) of Lung which has slightly invaded a bone?

My father is suffering with adenocarcinoma (Cancer) in right upeerlobe of lung, and the tumor has invaded a bone, is it possible to remove it with surgery?
Please note that it has not spread to any other part of the body till now !

They may decide to operate if they can destroy the cancer in the bone thru means of chemo and/or radiation. Seldom do they operate if the cancer has spread to another area other than the original site. There is an exciting new trial being used right now with lung cancers, I'll attach the link for you. You could print it off and your Dad can ask his oncologist if he may be suitable for the trial.  (+ info)

What is the average prognosis for pancreatic adenocarcinoma?

I realize this is different for everyone, but is their about an average survival percentage for pancreatic adenocarcinoma? and if not, how long patients have to live?

You have to tell us which stage - I,II,II,IV ?
Here's a good overview from the NCI (National Cancer Institute)
If you give us a stage, we can give you averages.
Note that averages are not specific predictions for any single person.
Some do better than average. Some do not do as well

From this site http://cancer.emedtv.com/pancreatic-cancer/pancreatic-cancer-survival-rates-p2.html
Stage plays a role in the pancreatic cancer prognosis. Based on historical data:
7 percent of pancreas cancer cases are diagnosed while the cancer is still confined to the primary site (localized)
26 percent of pancreas cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes or directly beyond the primary site
52 percent of pancreatic cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has already metastasized (distant stage)
14 percent of pancreatic cancer cases had staging information that was unknown.

The corresponding 5 year relative pancreatic cancer survival rates were:
* 16.4 percent for localized
* 7.0 percent for regional
* 1.8 percent for distant
* 4.3 percent for unstaged.  (+ info)

How can I get direct heat on a sebaceous cyst inside the ear?

My husband has a sebaceous cyst in his ear canal, and I'd like to try using heat to treat it. How can I get DIRECT heat on the cyst specifically? I can use a heating pad, but I'm thinking "concentrated" heat right on the cyst. Any ideas?
He has been seen by an ear doctor, and will have the cyst removed next month under General Anesthesia, but if I can maybe avoid this by home treatment, I'd like to.

how about using a blow dryer on low heat? sometimes its recommended for ear aches  (+ info)

How can one rid themselves of sebaceous cysts?

I've found the last couple of years that I've been getting sebaceous cysts? Does anybody know how I can get rid of them myself, without having to go to the doctor?
Is squeezing sebaceous cysts harmful?

You don't say where they are, but don't squeeze them! This is dangerous and can cause infection!!

I've had several cysts in different places and the only way to get rid of them is to leave them alone and they will go on their own, even if it takes several months.

You can try pressing a hot compress (like a washcloth in hot water, or a wheatbag) on the area for a few minutes a couple times a day, this can certainly help to reduce them if you keep at it.

One excellent tip that a doctor gave me and helped clear mine up was to take flaxseed oil capsules - 1000 mg a day. The oil helps to clear the blockage. This helped me so much and I continue to take it and I haven't had one since! Flax is also really good for you anyways :)

Good luck x  (+ info)

How much does sebaceous cyst removal hurt?

How much does sebaceous cyst removal hurt?
Like after the procedure. I have to get one removed on the top middle of my head, at like 8pm, and then the next day I have to take 2 midterm exams. I was wondering if it will hurt a lot, and if I should take anything so I won't be distracted.

I think it might sting a little but not too terribly bad. Not a throb or anything. It would be different if you were using your head,,lol  (+ info)

How long does it take for a small sebaceous cyst to dissapear?

The sebaceous cyst is only small and is smaller then my pinkie, (finger) I'm only 14 and its on my shaft. I know it won't go away fully and has chances of coming back, but how long does it take till it's non noticable?

Sebaceous cyst will never disappear.Excision is the only treatment.Some time it swell due to secondary infection which can be controlled by antibiotics.  (+ info)
