Causes of Sebaceous Cyst

  • The cyst in sebaceous gland is producing oil at a faster rate than can be released from the gland.
  • The cyst in sebaceous gland or its duct becomes damaged or blocked, causing oil accumulation.
  • Genetic conditions like Gardner’s syndrome or basal cell nevus syndrome.
  • Lastly, hereditary conditions like steatocystoma multiplex.

Appearance

Sebaceous cysts are generally found on the face, neck, scalp, and back. Moreover, these cysts may remain small or grow large.

A typical cyst –

  • Is a small, round lump under the skin.
  • Feels harder than normal skin.
  • Is usually the same color as the skin
  • Commonly has a small blackhead in the center called the punctum.
  • Is often filled with foul-smelling white cheesy material.
  • Sore and tender skin around the bump with redness develops if it gets secondarily infected with bacterias.

Cysts range from pea-sized, starting at about 1 centimetre, and can go up to 5 centimetres. If the cyst has a diameter larger than 5 c centimetres, is showing signs of infection, such as redness, pain, or pus drainage, or is recurring really fast after removal, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

In fact, sebaceous cysts usually refer to epidermoid cysts.

  • Epidermoid cysts contain keratin, which is the protein in the top layer of skin and originates from the epidermis. But when the cells move into your skin instead of shedding they result in the formation of epidermoid cyst removal.
  • Pilar cysts also contain keratin and originate from the hair follicles.

Sebaceous cyst treatment

Cysts are non-cancerous and do not pose any health threats. However, they can be extremely uncomfortable. do not require any type of sebaceous cysts treatment. Therefore, the most preferred course of action is to keep them clean and not try too many treatments.

However, if a cyst has burst or is secondarily infected, the doctor sometimes needs to lance and drain it. In such a case, the doctor may need to prescribe a course of antibiotics.

  • Medication

Dermatologists prescribe medicines like antibiotics in the form of pills and topical creams or injectables if sebaceous cysts treatment is required for infection. These will reduce the inflammation and pain of the cysts.

  • Surgery

After the inflammation reduces, dermatologists remove your cyst with a curette or scalpel, after sanitizing the area. They may also stitch the area up. If removed completely with its wall, cysts usually do not recur after this procedure.

i.Sterilisation: The area to be treated is prepared by sterilizing the surrounding skin with an antiseptic (povidone-iodine) solution, to prevent any chances of infection.

ii. Anaesthesia: A local anesthetic (2% lignocaine with adrenaline) is injected or applied topically to the site to minimize or prevent pain during the procedure.

iii. Incision and removal: A small opening is made using a blade or with radiofrequency into the center (punctum) of the cyst after which the contents of the cyst are expressed out from that opening followed by removal of cyst wall and finally opening is closed with sutures if required and dressing.

 

  • Incision and drainage (I&D):

This is done if the cyst is secondarily infected with the collection of pus in it. This is done only to drain the pus and for symptomatic relief. Once the infection has subsided, surgery for cyst removal is required.

  • Excision:

In this treatment, the cyst is excised/ removed completely either by surgical excision or punch excision.

This treatment is not done usually but can be done for very small lesions.
