In brief: Minor Procedure

Excision of a sebaceous cyst should ideally be done when there are no signs of infection.
The area is injected with local anesthesia, and a small amount of skin is removed along with the cyst and its contents.

In brief: Surgery...

This is a straightforward office procedure that can be done by a plastic surgeon with local anesthesia.
It is important to remove the entire wall of the cyst or it may recur.
