Clinical lancing

Clinical lancing is a procedure used to evacuate non-beneficial subcutaneous fluid accumulations, such as pustules or boils, if they remain in place once they have finished sequestering fluid from the surrounding areas, using a sterilised needle. Incision and drainage is a more general term for lancing that also covers the use of an incising scalpel.
