A 34-year-old member asked:

Do sebaceous cysts go away by themselves?

Sometimes: But once they become a chronic problem with infections, it is rare. Incision and drainage won't cure it either. The whole cyst must be removed.

Rarely: Thy may go up and down in size or rupture and drain ... but until they are removed they rarely go away.
