How common is sebaceous gland carcinoma in a 28 yr/white/Female. I am getting 'cyst' removed on lower lid & Dr said it MUST be sent for pathology

How common is sebaceous gland carcinoma in a 28 yr/white/Female. I am getting 'cyst' removed on lower lid & Dr said it MUST be sent for pathology

Common enough: If I understand correctly, you're upset because your physician wants to send what you think is a simple benign cyst to pathology to know for sure. It's impossible to be certain on the gross, if you want to play a guessing game you are foolish, not sending it would be malpractice, and you'll be extremely sorry if a cancer is missed. Here's how a missed lesion looks before eating into the brain. ...Read more

If your eye is also red and draining you may have conjunctivitis; need a topical antibiotic drop. See your Eye Doctor if not better 48hrs ...Read more

Is sebaceous gland dangerous for men? Is it contagious? & how can you get rid of it?

Is sebaceous gland dangerous for men? Is it contagious? & how can you get rid of it?

No, no, can't: Sebaceous glands aren't dangerous for either men or women (yes, you have them, too). They definitely aren't contagious. Everyone has these oil glands everywhere. Therefore you can't get rid of them. Sometimes they'll plug up & enlarge, even get infected. In that case, your doc can lance them to allow stuff (pus) to drain out. Warm compresses sometimes are enough to cause 'em to open & drain on own. ...Read more

Chances that my chalazion is sebaceous gland carcinoma? First time I ever had it- dr didn't send for biopsy, im 28

Chances that my chalazion is sebaceous gland carcinoma? First time I ever had it- dr didn't send for biopsy, im 28

Send if it recurs: The consequences of missing a cancer disguised as a chalazion are serious, but you have a window period if it recurs and is then sent for study. This is an okay practice if, and only if, your ophthalmologist was confident enough that it was a classic chalazion to forego histopathology the first time. If a recurrence is sent, you'll be safe. And it's very good you asked. ...Read more
