If : If your skin tends to be thick, oily, and you have had problems with acne or similar type lesions, chances are you have a sebaceous cyst. If it is something that is bothering you have your dermatologist check it out.

Agree : Agree w/ dr. Arden. If it is a sebaceous cyst it may continue to enlarge and may require surgical removal.
