A different cyst :-): And now to answer your corrected question- this could be an inclusion cyst, epithelial cyst, or wen. All are similar names for a cyst which is made when the glands that secrete oil into the skin coalese in to a balloon- they squirt a thick waxy white substance called cebum into the balloon which feels hard when pushed together. This can be easily removed surgically in office to prevent recurrence.

Likely: Squeezing zits (acne) can inadvertently force lipid and bacteria (contained in the pimple) deeper into the skin and subcutaneous fat. That may spread the infection and result in a deeper, more painful problem. It is better to spot treat the pimple with a product specially formulated to treat acne.
