Sebaceous Cysts

January 30th, 2005

By Sal Roach

Is Everything OK?

While writing for a health care site has its share of surprising and educating experiences -One of the most interesting is discovering what it is people are seeking information about.

Rather than report the news to you, we have decided to start reporting the news that you are seeking. In checking the keywords people type into search engines, we found that a good number of you are looking for information on Sebaceous Cysts. These are skin cysts that form from blocked oil glands in the skin.

Why are people spending so much time reading about these small skin abnormalities? Well, when you go to the doctor, you will usually find that Sebaceous Cysts are not a problem, and told that if you don’t mind the physical appearance, to leave it alone.

However, since people continue to seek their own medical solutions, we thought we could shed some light on which cysts are a dangerous and which ones will most likely stay benign. Even after your doctor tells you their diagnosis, we realize you need to check for yourself. It is why we are here.

If you feel that you have a sebaceous cyst that has been swelling or is causing extreme discomfort for over 2 weeks, you should see your doctor immediately. For the most part, there is no treatment other than draining the fluid from the cyst. There is no medical need to do anything else.

The cysts generally have a round appearance, with only a black, dark portion of the cyst being visible on the skin.

In general, the rule of thumb seems to be that if the cyst is filled with liquid and is easy to move around with your forefinger without discomfort, everything should be find. It is the cysts or growths that have little mobility and appear hard and firm that could develop into cancerous problems.

To prevent Sebaceous Cysts from forming, good hygiene and a daily washing with simple soap and water are good enough preventative measures. Because of this, a large number of cysts appear on parts of the body that are not commonly washed, such as the back of the neck, back of the knee, back of the ears, inside the nose, and in the buttocks and gentile areas.

Daily showers or baths with antibacterial soaps are highly recommended, and, if possible, showering with someone else can help to keep you clean as well as with a smile on your face to start to stay.

It’s always difficult to get those hard to reach places. Now, it appears that it is necessary as well.
