11 year old having cysts on the body. Non- cancerous cells in biopsy report. Any cure other than surgery?

My 11 year old boy has had a total of about 8 cysts come onto his body since birth. Some have gone away on there own, some removed through surgery and a few ones at the moment. They range from pea size to almost pecan size. They ve been biopsied and are not cancerous but I d like to know if there s a cure . The surgery was kind of hard on him. They have formed in the lip, eyebrow, jaw, upper arms, leg and collarbone.

Thank you for your query.

Though you have mentioned the details you have not provided the details of the biopsy report except that the cysts are not cancerous. The biopsy report will give a diagnosis and thereafter a management protocol can be worked out.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
