Afraid of cortisone shots

Recommended Posts


I haven't had a cyst in about a year, but this month, one popped up on my chin. I realize that I do have some indentations on my chin from other cortisone shots I've had, although not extremely obvious, I do notice it in certain lights. I'm not sure which shots caused the atrophy since most of the shots I've had were around the chin area, and I don't know if they will ever completely fill in since the last shot I had was a year ago so you would think it would have filled in completely by now?? Has anyone experienced atrophy that never filled in?

Also, I have an appointment for a cortisone shot tomorrow, but now I'm afraid of getting worse atrophy than before. But I know that cortisone shots are really the only thing that will get rid of a cyst quickly.
