What are the symptoms of a Sebaceous Cyst?
If your cyst turns red and starts to hurt, that means it has become infected. A doctor might suggest a course of antibiotics for the infection. If the cyst is punctured, it might leek a white, fatty material. The cyst could also grow a tiny horn on top. They could appear beside the nail or in any other uncomfortable place like the scrotum.
The cyst might appear to be movable under the skin. Even if the cyst doesn’t hurt, the area around it might become sore.

Sebaceous Cyst Removal Information
Usually, when surgically removing a sebaceous cyst, Dr. Tutino uses local anesthesia. Still, depending on the case and the location and size of the cyst, he could also recommend general anesthesia. Dr. Tutino makes sure that he removes the entire lining of the cyst during the procedure. This thoroughness ensures that the cyst will not come back after a while.
How Does Dr. Tutino Perform Sebaceous Cyst Removal Surgery?
Dr. Tutino usually performs a sebaceous cyst removal surgery as an outpatient case. An outpatient surgery means that you won’t have to stay overnight and go home after the cyst has been permanently removed. Dr. Tutino opens the cyst with a scalpel, and then depending on the type of procedure, removes the content of the sac. He does this by squeezing the keratin out of the cyst. Once all the sebum and the dead cells have been removed, Dr. Tutino pulls the cyst out. He makes sure that the cyst doesn’t break during the procedure. Once the cyst is removed, Dr. Tutino sterilizes the incision and stitches it close. The incision might leave a tiny scar, which will disappear with time. Dr. Tutino will discuss with you all the things you can do to minimize scarring.
