WHAT TO EXPECT
Cysts are saclike pockets of fluid or semisolid material, separated from nearby tissue by a distinct membrane. A doctor can perform an excision, or surgical removal, to cut out these pockets.
Skin cysts are particularly common in adults. They can range from a pinhead-size bump to a large lump. There are many different types of cysts. These are the most common types.
Epidermoid cysts are freely movable lumps that often feel rubbery. The cysts form under the skin when dead skin cells from the surface move deeper and multiply, forming a sac and secreting a soft, yellowish substance (a form of keratin) that fills the cyst.
Sebaceous cysts form inside sebaceous glands, which secrete the oily substance (sebum) that lubricates hair and skin. They’re more likely to appear in oilier areas, like the nape of the neck, the upper back, and the scalp. When normal gland secretions become trapped and build up, they can develop into a pouch.
Pilar cysts develop around hair follicles, most frequently on the scalp. Protein buildup in the hair follicles creates a smooth, round bump on the surface of the skin.
