Skin Conditions – Sebaceous/Epidermal Cysts

They are painless, benign, slow growths which may occur anywhere on the body but usually found on the head and trunk. Both types of cysts rarely require treatment unless they become large and bothersome. However if the cyst becomes red, tender, swollen, ruptured or large, surgical excision is recommended to completely remove it. Inflamed cysts are best treated with intralesional steroid injection to decrease the swelling and pain immediately.
