In brief: Get it checked
If it is a sebaceous cyst or a lipoma, if you want it gone, then you have to have it removed surgically.
Depending on where it is and how big it is, often it can just be done in the doctor's office. You need to have it checked by a doc to know for sure that it is benign (not cancer) and to tell you what you need to do to get rid of it.
