A sebaceous cyst is a common type of cyst that forms when the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for producing oil (sebum) to lubricate the skin and hair, become blocked. The cyst is usually filled with a yellow, oily substance and is typically harmless. However, if the cyst becomes infected or causes discomfort, it may need to be treated.

The cyst itself is encapsulated in a sac-like structure, commonly referred to as the cyst wall or capsule. The wall is made up of tissue that surrounds the accumulated keratin and sebum. If the cyst is surgically removed, the entire cyst, including its sac, is usually extracted to prevent it from recurring.

It’s important to note that attempting to squeeze or pop a sebaceous cyst at home can lead to infection, inflammation, and potential scarring. If you have concerns about a sebaceous cyst or if it is causing discomfort, it’s advisable to seek medical attention. A healthcare professional can evaluate the cyst, determine the appropriate course of action, and perform any necessary procedures for removal or drainage.
