Durai The Surgeon



A cyst is a dome-shaped, slow-growing, protein Filled mass that can move easily under the skin and is yellow or white. There are hundreds of different forms of cysts. True sebaceous cysts, which arise from your sebaceous glands, are uncommon and differ from epidermoid cysts, which come from the epidermis, and pilar cysts, which come from hair follicles.You can find sebaceous cysts all throughout your body (except the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet). 

The punctum, a tiny protrusion in the form of a dome, will emerge when compressed. The fluid (sebum) within can be expelled through that orifice.
Sebaceous cysts are often not dangerous. Very few can get cancer (cancerous). Sebaceous cysts and epidermal inclusion cysts can coexist. Keep in mind that sebaceous glands are not involved in epidermal inclusion cysts.

  • Your sebaceous glands are the source of sebaceous cysts.
  • If the gland or its duct—the opening via which the sebum exits for the skin—becomes injured or clogged, cysts may form.
  • As a result of damage to the region, such as a scratch, surgical wound, or skin disease like acne, this typically occurs.
  • A duct that is malformed or distorted, as well as hereditary diseases such basal cell nevus syndrome, can potentially cause the cysts to develop.
Symptoms for Sebaceous CYST


  • A little bump under the skin is a sebaceous cyst’s primary symptom.
  • The lump often doesn’t hurt.
  • Cysts can, however, occasionally swell up and feel sensitive to the touch.
  • If the cyst is irritated, the skin around it may be red and/or heated.
  • If it gets infected then there will be pain and pus discharge


  • Sebaceous Cysts may seem somewhat yellowish, but a pathologist’s examination of the removed.
  • Cyst is what definitively determines the diagnosis.
  • The doctor may occasionally take a biopsy to rule out other skin growths.

  • Sebaceous cysts can be disregarded if they are tiny, not unpleasant, and not expanding because they are often not hazardous.
  • Your healthcare practitioner may inject a steroid medication into a tiny cyst if it gets inflammatory to lessen swelling.
  • A big, sensitive, or irritated cyst may be drained by a medical professional.
  • If larger cysts interfere with clothes or cause hair loss on the scalp, they may need to be removed.
  • You’ll receive a topical anaesthetic to numb your skin before having your cyst removed.
  • Your doctor will create an incision and extract the protein from the inside.
  • If the entire cyst is removed, it’s likely that it won’t return; nevertheless, if any part of the lining is left, it’s likely that the cyst will reoccur.
