"Infected Sabaceous Cyst"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

Had to visit the Accident and Emergency at Lewisham hospital this afternoon, I was seen very quickly as my cyst was very infected, all the staff were friendly and professional and kept me abrest of what was going on. Options were given and procedures explained to me, having the cyst drained hurt quite a bit, but thats what you get for wishful thinking that the infection will just go away by itself.

Thank you all for your care and understanding.
