A friend who is a doctor had a go at getting a cyst off the back of my neck. She's a proper doctor but this isn't her area of expertise. However she had a scapel and a vial full of local. So injected with local, big slice along the top of the cyst and nothing came out when she squeezed. She says its rock solid. I suspect she's not a sporner as she wasn't keen to dig it out with the scapel. grin

If I go to my gP will they refer me somewhere or will they say it's just cosmetic and refuse to do anything? It doesn't hurt but I am aware of it when I move my head.

If it's on your neck can't you tell the GP it's annoying and rubbing on things? I've had a cyst removed from a different area for similar reasons.

If they won't I'll come squeeze it out smile

she needed a special Cyst Spoon I'll bet (no idea really)

Show your GP, yes it will most likely be cosmetic, ask for a ref to private clinic. Might be worth looking up local guidelines for cyst removal as well

It does rub on the collar of clothes. Guess I will go and see what the gP says.
