Do sebaceous glands on penis become a problem, or are they just there for no reason?

Do sebaceous glands on penis become a problem, or are they just there for no reason?

Perhaps?: Sebaceous glands are present to provide oil to the skin. They are there because that is the way we are made. Occasionally we can have the plug up & cause a cyst to form. It is best to leave these alone. An skin/soft tissue infection in the genital area can be very serious. They may be unsightly but they are sterile. If you prefer removal, see a urologist, dermatologist or surgeon & b careful! ...Read more

How long for infected sebaceous cyst on penis to go away?

Sebaceous cyst: Infected cysts are best treated with drainage and good wound care (soap and h2o). Takes about 2 weeks to heal. Would suggest aggressive scrubbing and, generally, keep it clean. In this case the treatment might be better than the disease. Hope it's just a cyst. ;). ...Read more

Would regular sunlight exposure or heat help fade sebaceous prominence (on the penis).

No : Sebaceous glands tend to enlarge with regular ultraviolet light exposure.

Can you tell me how to get rid of (possible) sebaceous cyst's on my penis?

Leave them alone: Show them to your physician on your next routine visit. All men have sebaceous glands there; inclusion ("sebaceous") cysts are common enough. They are easy to remove surgically if they get big and are annoying. Do not try to do your own surgery here as if you rupture the capsule, it will be a mess and make cure much harder. ...Read more

Not really.: They can be removed individually with an electric needle or certain types of lasers, but i don't know of anyone willing to do that.
