In brief: Yes

Lesions above the brow can be removed for diagnostic or cosmetic purposes.
This is generally done by a plastic surgeon, or oculoplastic surgeon if one is available in your area. It would be outpatient surgery. Pathology results would likely be available within a week.

In brief: Usually yes

Sebaceous cysts can be removed from almost anywhere.
However, around the eyebrow you should have this done by an experienced facial surgeon to avoid nerve damage and to have the best possible scar.
