Fluid filled area: Most frequently, these are sebaceous cysts, essentially plugged follicles which have accumulated material and have made a kind of rind around it. They are readily removed. There are a few other causes; your doctor should know. Not sure of the cost, but it is an in-office procedure, not like a surgery in an operating room. Here is a link of cyst removal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bby0kjtdjn8.
