I have a sebaceous cyst in my pubic area i think and it hurts really bad, is it a way to remove it at home or treat it?

Probably not: You could try some warm compresses but true sebaceous cysts require surgical excision. They are usually not painful unless they are becoming infected. You may need to see a physician.
