Cysts are generally benign formations that build up within the very outer level of the skin. A sebaceous cyst consists of a pale, painless bump in the skin that generally appears the size of a small pea and can grow to become quite large. These cysts are quite common and are caused by a number of conditions.
Unlike acne that proliferates in blocked pores, a sebaceous cyst typically won’t show signs of infection or “come to a head” the way an acne pustule will. However, cystic acne is not to be confused with sebaceous cysts, even though both affect the sebaceous glands. Due to the fact that these formations are painless and typically do not cause any complications, many patients have sebaceous cysts that go undiagnosed for many years, and the majority of patients choose to let their cyst go untreated rather than undergoing a surgical procedure to have the formation removed. Despite the fact that these cysts do not present much of a medical risk to a patient, it is important that a sebaceous cyst is officially diagnosed by a medical professional.
