    The Cyst

    By Joy Lynn Clark 9/8/2020 I have had 3 cysts in my lifetime. A cyst is like a large blemish that grows over time. The first cyst I had was on the back of my neck. My stepmom kept swearing that I had a , “goiter “. It sounded gross but the thing was fairly small and I had hoped that it would just clear up. The thing got bigger and bigger. It looked to be filled with pus and I asked my stepmom if I should just pop it. She urged me to contact a dermatologist because it might leave a scar. On the day I was to head…
