Sebaceous Cyst In-office Excision and Drainage

These are noncancerous small bumps beneath the skin. They are most commonly located on the trunk. They are slow growing and often painless, however they can become painful and bothersome and may require surgical removal. 

Signs and symptoms: 

  • A tiny blackhead plugging the central opening of the cyst
  • A thick, yellow, smelly material that sometimes drains from the cyst
  • Redness, swelling and tenderness in the area, if inflamed or infected


  • Surgical excision in the office under local anesthetic
  • Incision and drainage if infected or abscessed
