Could a skin cyst be from ingrown hair around my penis?

Could a skin cyst be from ingrown hair around my penis?

Maybe: More likely this is a sebaceous cyst. These are not infected but can be removed if unsightly. Get checked out to be sure.

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

How do you tell your parents you have a red bump on your penis like a cyst or ingrown hair, nervous on how to tell them. By the way I have not had sex?

How do you tell your parents you have a red bump on your penis like a cyst or ingrown hair, nervous on how to tell them. By the way I have not had sex?

See your doctor: Since you have not had sex, you don't have any worry about STD causing the bump, so you don't have to be embarrassed to ask what could cause this. Are you worried that your parents would over react? Just assure them that you have not had sex, and to take you to the doctor so you can learn what it is and what can be done to treat it. Telling the truth works most of the time :)

Sounds like it: If this is around a hair follicle it is called folliculitis. It will respond to drainage but may require an antibiotic to treat. If it worsens, see your doctor as these can sometimes progress to a full blown abscess.

Had cyst on bikini line from an infected ingrown hair. I used Fucidin cream to relieve the pain. Now there's a large ball under skin. Needs draining?

Had cyst on bikini line from an infected ingrown hair. I used Fucidin cream to relieve the pain. Now there's a large ball under skin. Needs draining?

Throw away Fucidin: This should not be used this way. It will NOT relieve pain. You are not describing a condition which calls for any antibiotic. If you can squeeze out the contents os this cyst, GO AHEAD. When you empty it of sebum and pus it will heal better and feel better. If you have significant distress, a DR can drain it for you. Sometimes cortisone is injected into these to shrink them.

I'm wondering if I have a Bartholin cyst or an ingrown hair? What's the difference? There's no pain but I don't see no hair that could be in it?

R/O BARTHOLIN CYST: It sounds like you may be describing inflammation of the BARTHOLIN gland just outside the vagina. This can result in cyst formation and abcess. You need a full exam /labs/STD SCREEN. You may require antibiotics and potential a surgical procedure please get prompt evaluation By internist or gyn.

I got a something that appears to be a cyst, I have had cyst before like on my finger, but I think this time is different because it got it near my male genituls and I think it may be something I got due to an ingrown hair, I'm very impatient so I squeeze

Needs to be checked: We can not say what exactly it is. It might be a small abscess or a cyst. I suggest you consult your doctor to find out what it is. You squeezed it and did it drain pus or blood or nothing. Get it checked from your doctor as you might need Anyibiotics and / or incision and drainage or if it is a cyst causing symptoms then it may need to be removed surgically

I have a dime size lump on my inner thigh area. It isn't emitting anything and shouldn't be an ingrown hair. Maybe a cyst of some sort? Help!

Cyst or a lipoma: I can't possibly tell you for sure without seeing or examining your bump, but the most common causes would be a cyst or a lipoma (a benign growth of fat cells). However, it is also possible to have skin cancer below the surface of your skin. You should see you dermatologist for an evaluation and possibly a biopsy.

I have a large bump on my lower pubic area right above where my penis starts. I thought it might be an ingrown hair, but I haven't shaved in months.

Still possible: It is possible that you have a cyst or an abscess from an ingrown hair or a sweat gland. It is possible to develop a clogged skin poor, hair follicle, sweat gland without an infection. It will form a nodule that could possibly become infected later. If it bothers you, see your doctor sooner than later.
