Head and Neck Cysts and Masses Surgery

Head and neck masses can occur for a variety of reasons, which Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ keeps under control thanks to her many years of experience. Because they are self-limiting, the majority of them are benign and do not require surgery. There are, however, several types of neck masses that can be surgically removed. Cleft cysts and duct cysts, suspicious lymph nodes that can't be diagnosed any other way, and various cysts or masses that the patient wants to get rid of for visual anxiety can all be surgically removed. By consulting Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ and her team, you can resolve any situation in this area that you are concerned about.


Surgery Process

Before undergoing a procedure in the field of head and neck cyst and mass surgery, you must pay close attention to a number of details. Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, the operator, and our other experts will inform you of this. However, you should be aware that smoking can have a significant negative impact on the surgical procedure. As a result, you should refrain from smoking for at least three weeks following surgery. Also, keep in mind that problems like colds or chest flu can jeopardise general anaesthesia. You should notify the Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ and her assistants if this happens.


What Are the Risks of the Surgery?

In head and neck surgeries, a variety of complications such as bleeding, infection, scarring, and nerve damage can occur. As a result, it will always be more accurate to prefer specialists in their fields, especially at this point. Although the risk is usually low, any surgery has the potential to cause complications. If an infection occurs, antibiotics may be required. In some cases, the infection must be drained. You should notify the operator, Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, and her team if any complications arise in the area where the operation is being performed.


What to Expect After Surgery?

Swelling and discoloration around the cut area are to be expected. Some pain is normal after surgery, but if it does not go away or gets worse, it could be an indication of infection or bleeding. There will be some numbness in the area where the surgery is performed. Within 7 days, the majority of patients are able to return to work or school. However, at this point, you should follow our surgeon's advice, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, and keep in mind that the situation may vary depending on the patient. To prevent bleeding, avoid strenuous activity, exercise, lifting more than 10 pounds, or bending excessively for the first two weeks after surgery.
