Sebacious cyst pubic area guy?

Needs a question: Unfortunately there is not a real question here. Cysts are growths that occur below the skin which are fluid filled sacs. Particularly in people who shave in the pubic region i frequently see abcesses. An abcess is a deep infection below the skin and often requires a surgical treatment. If you have a painful red bump in the pubic region (regardless of gender) see a doctor right away!
