First off, Welcome to the board. It is a really cool place and I hope you find the answers and advise you nrrd here. There are a lot of cool people here who can help you....
It says from what I have read, that they most likely go away... If not, the can be removed as an out patient. More common in woman, but guys get them too. If the bother you, go have it remeoved.
Nonetheless, this was what I found. Hope it helps…
Have you ever found a small lump or a bump on your body, perhaps near your vagina or on your genitals? One of the questions women ask me most are about these small bumps or lumps just under the skin, of course women are most often worried when these occur in the vaginal area.
It is not uncommon for women to fear that these bumps or lumps under the skin may be genital herpes. The fact is that genital herpes creates a completely different kind of sore -- a blister-type sore that eventually becomes crusty -- not just a bump or lump under the skin. Very often, after careful inspection by a qualified health care professional, these under-the-skin bumps and lumps are found to be sebaceous cysts which are sometimes called epidermal cysts.
Although sebaceous cysts are usually found on the face, neck, and trunk, they also many times occur in the vaginal area or other parts of the genitalia of both women and men.
Sebaceous cysts are usually painless, slow-growing small bumps or lumps that move freely under the skin. It's important not to touch or try to remove the substance inside to prevent tenderness, swelling, and infection of a sebaceous cyst.
What is a sebaceous cyst?
A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance. A foul odor is also often present in the substance called keratin which fills sebaceous cysts. Keratin is a protein that creates the sac of cells called sebaceous cysts. The bumps or lumps you can feel under your skin are actually the sac of cells.
What causes sebaceous cysts?
Sebaceous cysts are often the result of swollen hair follicles, or skin trauma.
What are the symptoms of sebaceous cysts?
Small lumps or bumps that occur just under the skin of the vagina, genitalia, breast, abdomen, face, neck, or elsewhere on the body are the most common symptom of sebaceous cysts.
Occasionally infections may occur. Signs or symptoms that may indicate infection of sebaceous cysts include:
• increased temperature of the skin over the bumps or lumps
• greyish white, cheesy, foul smelling material draining from the bump or lump
How are sebaceous cysts diagnosed ?
Sebaceous cysts are usually easily diagnosed by their appearance to the trained eye. In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out other conditions with a similar appearance.
Treatments for sebaceous cysts
Sebaceous cysts most often disapear on their own and are not dangerous. Occasionally, they may become inflamed and tender. Sometimes sebaceous cysts grow large that they may interfere with your everyday life. When this happens, surgical removal in your health care provider's office may be necessary. Small inflamed cysts can often be treated by injection of steroid medications or with antibiotics.
Complications of sebaceous cysts
Sebaceous cysts may occasionally become infected and form into painful abscesses. It is important when sebaceous cysts are surgically removed that the entire sac is excised to help prevent a recurrence. However, it's important to note that sebaceous cyst recurrence in not unusual.
Remember to consult your health care provider anytime you notice any type of growth, bump, or lump on your body. Although sebaceous cysts are not dangerous, your doctor should examine you to ensure that skin cancer is not present.
How many times do people have to ask the same damn questions? Isn't there a FAQ here for people to look up?
We have all learned to do a search before posting something....
Sebaceous cysts are different from sebaceous glands. a sebaceous cyst is when a sebaceous gland has got blocked but keeps producing sebum, so it swells much bigger. They are like a big deep pimple, but they will go away after some weeks.
Ordinary sebaceous glands are pin-head size or so. They become noticeable at puberty because they get larger then. They very gradually decrease in size over middle age and onwards.
I've had one for a few month now, and i got it checked by my doctor and he said it was ok, but its really sore.
