What Are Cysts and Tumors?

Cysts and tumors, usually noncancerous, often form in a majority of individuals. They appear as sac-like cavities that are usually full of dead skin. Cysts and tumors can show up anywhere within the human body and come in all shapes and sizes. While most cysts and tumors do not cause pain or harm, some could grow to become troublesome for individuals. Cysts or tumors that are larger in size usually are removed and sent for evaluation to ensure they're actually benign. Our office in Kansas City, MO removes various types of cysts and tumors with the help of board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Matthew Hlavacek and Dr. Jason Baker. Call Kansas City Surgical Arts to get an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for your cyst or tumor.

How Are Cysts and Tumors Removed?

A lot of different treatment options are available at Kansas City Surgical Arts if you're afflicted by cysts or tumors. A common treatment for cysts and tumors comprises removing them through surgery. Before surgical removal, Dr. Hlavacek or Dr. Baker will take a biopsy (or a small sample) of the cyst or tumor to send off to a laboratory in order to accurately determine if the skin growth is benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Afterward, the cyst or tumor will be surgically removed in an outpatient setting while you are under local anesthesia to keep you at ease.

Everyone that I had any interaction with at this facility were beyond amazing!!!

Amazing staff, amazing Dr, and amazing results so far! From consultation to surgery, Dr Hlavacek did incredible. I got my breast augmentation surgery yesterday at 8am and he called me last night at 9pm to check on me. With surgery yesterday, they already look fantastic even with the swelling. To the point my husband said he would have paid double for them 🤣 I can’t wait to see what they look like when completely healed! Thank you all!

Dr.Baker was amazing! I was having issues on the day of surgery and gave him a call up around 10pm not knowing if he was going to answer, but he did and helped me tremendously with getting the prescription I needed right away. We had a little trouble finding a pharmacy so he did some research after our call and gave us a call back about 30 minutes later. He even gave me a check up call in the morning to make sure I was still doing alright. He saved me so trouble by answering his phone that night, can’t say thank you enough.

We were so impressed by Dr.Baker and his staff. I had a small complication prior to surgery , and Dr.Baker himself called me back and helped me. Then when I arrived for my surgery, my driver developed medical issues, and they took care of him as well! They were all so kind and caring, never rushed. Then Dr. Baker called back in the afternoon to check on both of us! I would give the very highest recommendation to anyone I know needing oral surgery.

Kansas City Surgical Arts is the best. The WHOLE staff is amazing and caring. It starts with setting up a consultation all the way through your procedure and follow ups. The front desk ladies, patient coordinator (Hannah) to nursing, (Bella, and Kim) and of course Dr. Hlavacek (the best), care so much for their patients. I would highly recommend KC Surgicial Arts.

About Us
What is the difference between a cyst and a tumor?

A cyst is a sac-like cavity filled with fluid or semi-solid material, while a tumor is an abnormal growth of cells. Cysts are usually noncancerous and can occur anywhere in the body, whereas tumors are either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Both require a professional evaluation from a medical professional like Dr. Hlavacek or Dr. Baker for diagnosis and treatment.

Is cyst and tumor removal painful?

Cysts and tumors are typically not painful to remove. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, and the procedure is usually quick and straightforward. Our team can prescribe medication to manage any discomfort or pain after the removal. Rest assured that our team at Kansas City Surgical Arts prioritizes your comfort and well-being throughout the entire process.

Are there any risks associated with cyst and tumor removal?

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks involved. These include infection, bleeding, scarring, and damage to surrounding tissues. However, these risks are minimal when the procedure is done by an experienced and board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
