Can eventually thin the overlying skin enough that it could rupture with minimal manipulation. However, its best to remove surgically to minimize the chances for recurrence.

If truly a sebaceous cyst, it will follow a vicious cycle of filling with sebum, becoming infected, draining, then starting over. If infected now, may require incision and drainage by doctor. Once healed, have sac removed to prevent recurrence.
