Can getting a sebaceous cyst removed hurt?

Minor procedure. Really, the only part that smarts a little is the injection of the Lidocaine to numb the area. Once that's done, the cyst can be removed painlessly. Recovery is not painful either.
Nope! Local anesthesia (a small needle stick is all that is needed) makes this completely painless, and the post-removal discomfort is very mild--tylenol is all that is usually needed. If the cyst is infected, antibiotics may also be prescribed.
