What is a Sebaceous Cyst?

Sebaceous cysts also known as Epidermoid cysts or inclusion cysts are common, noncancerous cysts of the skin. Cysts are atypical growths in your body that may contain liquid or semiliquid material, (proteinaceous).

Sebaceous cysts are mostly found on your face, neck, or torso. They grow slowly and aren’t life-threatening, but they may become uncomfortable if they go unchecked and can get infected to form abscesses.

Causes of Sebaceous cysts:

Sebaceous cysts form out of your sebaceous gland. The sebaceous gland produces the oil (called sebum) that coats your hair and skin.

Sebaceous Cyst Treatment Option

When the cyst or cysts continue growing, cause pain, and become bothersome, the doctor will suggest sebaceous cyst excision.

Conventional Wide Excision– The only treatment for sebaceous cyst is complete surgical excision. It is the traditional method to remove sebaceous cysts through a wide excision. This technique is highly invasive but also has minimal chances of cyst recurrence.

When should see one a specialist regarding the sebaceous cyst?

Most cysts don’t cause problems or need treatment. But if a cyst is bothering you for any reason, see a General Surgeon or Plastic Surgeon or dermatologist. If a cyst becomes swollen, tender, large, or infected, treatment may include antibiotics and then surgery.

Will sebaceous cysts recur after surgical removal?

Sebaceous cysts do not resolve on their own. But they often come back if incompletely removed. Most cysts don’t cause problems or need treatment.

Are sebaceous cysts painful?

Sebaceous cysts normally don’t hurt, but they can become tender, sore and red if they get infected. One sign of infection is redness and swelling around the cyst or foul-smelling drainage seeping out of the cyst.

What’s the difference between a cyst and a boil?

A boil is a painful collection of pus that forms in the skin because of a bacterial infection. Sometimes a sebaceous cyst can become infected, developing into a boil or skin abscess.
